Very strange totem and xine problem!


I just switched from mandrake 10.0 CE to fedora core 2.
I have xine set up and also totem as another front end for xine
I can play normally videos ( avi , mpeg etc ). But when I try to play a dvd i get all the sound and stuff right in xine but NO picture! No video @ all! In totem i get this error
"
The error was 'BadAlloc (insufficient resources for operation)'.
(Details: serial 82 error_code 11 request_code 141 minor_code 19)
(Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)
"

What is goin' wrong anyway?

I am having the same problem. I partially solved it as such:

Quoting the xinehq website FAQ:

This points to a problem with the Xv extension, which is used by xine to display the video image. To verify this, try running xine with the XShm video output plugin:

xine -V XShm

If that works fine, you just proved, that the Xv extension is buggy. xine will remember the last used video output plugin, so the setting will stay at XShm. You could simply continue using this, but XShm is a lot slower than Xv, so read on and see if you can get it working. Usually you should look for updated versions of the XFree driver module that belongs to your graphics card.
------ end of quoted material

Running xine that way (without the Xv extension) worked pretty well. Run xine-check at the command prompt to check out the xine status. Even though it seem to recognize the Xv there it doesn't work. May have simething to do with the fact that FC2 is not Xfree86 but is the newer X11/X.org video system.
Maybe some more configuration will solve this one.

I still have not figured out how to get Totem to work. I HAD the same error you quoted then I upgraded versions and Totemwon't even start and the messages changed to something about 2 threads (I'll post it later when I get a chance to look it up again).

Congratulations!! My totem issue is that when I try to run it I get this error:
> ** (totem:2669): WARNING **: libgstplay: failed initializing pipeline,
> error: Could not link video output thread (cs and balance)
Can't get a handle on what this is yet.

I still want to get the Xv interface to work with Xine (as it is faster).

I can't get mplayer (without gui) to work; error is:
X11 error: BadAlloc (insufficient resources for operation) 0.0% 0 0 0%

Can't load mplayer gui as there is some dependency issue.

Press on ! Good luck.

Went to mplayerhq as you recommended but I didn't see Fedora core 2 rpms.
Did you build your own or get the rpm from someplace?
(based on the relative complexity of the mplayer compilation and dependencies, it is more risky to build it myself I think.)

There r many ways to install easily mplayer
(1) U can set up apt4rpm easily as described here
http://ftp.icm.edu.pl/pub/linux/mplayer-rpms/apt.html
and then just run as root # apt-get install mplayer-gui

(2) Just download the following to a folder
http://ftp.icm.edu.pl/pub/linux/mpla...re4-3.i386.rpm
http://ftp.icm.edu.pl/pub/linux/mpla...re4-3.i386.rpm
http://ftp.icm.edu.pl/pub/linux/mpla...0-2.noarch.rpm
ftp://ftp.pbone.net/mirror/ftp.false...3.1-1.i386.rpm
And then as root run this
rpm -Uvh mplayer-common-1.0pre4-3.i386.rpm mplayer-gui-1.0pre4-3.i386.rpm mplayer-skin-default-1.0-2.noarch.rpm lame-libs-3.93.1-1.i386.rpm
(The last command is in one line)


U may want to optionally download this for more codecs
http://ftp.icm.edu.pl/pub/linux/mpla...2.0-2.i386.rpm

Good luck!
