Green line running along the edges of videos played in VLC


I am running openSUSE 10.2 and have installed VLC 0.8.6 from the Packman repos. Unfortunately, I get an annoying green line running along the bottom of some videos. This only happens in VLC and only with some videos (never happens for DVD movies I might add). The videos that cause this problem in VLC play fine using Kaffeine/Xine. Any idea what's wrong?

Know what you mean

I have seen the same thing but have no idea. There are too many media players available in linux for me to worry about it, so I just go to the next one if I was even using vlc for a movie which I only use for movies. MPlayer and xine are the best.

Remember that like most GNU goodies VLC is a work in progress. It may be the program, or a codec. But who knows, it's not even up to version 1 yet, so a little green line isn't going to bother me especially since it's one of the very few packages that will play darn near anything you throw at it.

Well yes, but VLC in Windows works perfectly. And I should mention it only happens when I use the XVideo extension output (which is default and the fastest) or the framebuffer output. The green lines do not appear if I use the other output modules, but those run slowly on my PIII system. Any ideas?

Hmmm, well, then XVideo might be at fault, or the way VLC interacts with it. I would see if a different version of XVideo is anywhere to be found, even an older one, and try it. THat would narrow it down. But if you think it a genuine bug, you might post a note at videolan.org .
