Mplayer and "-vo xv" video output in Xfree86 4.3.0


Hi!

I have Duron/650Mhz, 128MB ram and Ati Rage IIC 8MB. This is a slow machine but with Slackware 8.1 and mplayer (with "-vo xv")it was perfect for DivX movies.

I installed Slackware 9.0 and mplayer-0.90rc4 with codecs. But now there is no xv video driver output!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
vo: X11 running at 1024x768 with depth 24 and 32 bpp (":0.0" => local display)
Disabling DPMS
It seems there is no Xvideo support for your video card available.
Run 'xvinfo' to verify its Xv support, and read Xv section of DOCS/video.html !
See 'mplayer -vo help' for other (non-xv) video out drivers. Try -vo x11
Error opening/initializing the selected video_out (-vo) device.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here is what xvinfo says:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
X-Video Extension version 2.2
screen #0
no adaptors present
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

I had xv in 8.0!

Any solution for this? How to enable xv on my Ati adapter?

use one of the other video outs, like dga or X11.

look at that readme for xv and see what the requirements
are. acid_kewpie might know. you may just not have
some package installed that you need and that doc
might tell you what it is.

xv might just not be compiled into that version of mplayer.
maybe get the 8.0 slakware version of mplayer and
try it.

yeah just make sure you have the X development package installed (no idea how slack does this though... go gentoo) and when you recompile mplayer check that it is registered in the ./configure process. if it's not you'll need to investiagte a bit further.

Hm... I cann't use other drivers - it's too slow.

xv isnt part of mplayer (I compiled mplayer with xv) - it's part of Xfree86.

yes obviously, but the header files need to be correctly installed in order for mplayer to recognise it exists when it autodetects what video outputs it can use

With a radeon I need Load "extmod" in Section "Modules" of /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 for the Xv extensions to load, but you seem to have them on but no adapter recognized to run them. [...as per xvinfo's output].

Maybe you should look into /var/log/XFree86.0.log just to make sure everything is fine with your X server.
