Xine: All available video drivers fail??


Hello,

I just finished installing Xine and was very excited to fire up a movie...but no! At the command line I typed 'xine' and the gui popped up and started to print lines to the console. It finally died and left me with the message:

main: all available video drivers failed.

So I read up on the Xine website and none of their solutions, that being the -A switch, seemed to work for me. I searched around here and found similar questions with no answers, so I will throw mine out here.

The following is the output to console upon running xine:

% xine

When I run 'xine-check' I get this:

Please be patient, this script may take a while to run...

/dev/dvd is the default device that xine uses for playing DVDs.
You could make your life easier by creating a symlink named /dev/dvd
pointing to your DVD device (something like /dev/scd0 or /dev/hdc).
If your DVD-ROM device is /dev/hdb (slave ATAPI device on primary bus),
rm /dev/dvd
ln -s hdb /dev/dvd
typed as root will give you the symlink.
Alternatively, you can configure xine to use the real device directly,
using the setup dialog within xine, but I can't check your DMA
settings in that case...

I'm running RedHat 9.0
I have a dual monitor setup running with Xinerama on a nVidia RIVA TNT2 and a nVidia GeForce 4 420MX
I have onboard sound that is currently working with OSS drivers

I don't know that there is anything else important to tell you, but let me know if you need it. I am somewhat lost at this point and so close to moving completely away from Windoze. Any thoughts or help will be GREATLY appreciated!

Thanks!

You want the Xv driver you do

Looking through the debug text, I don't see xine trying to fire up the Xvideo driver. You might like to have a look for a file called:

.../lib/xine/plugins/1.0.0/xineplug_vo_out_xv.so

If this is not present, then it won't try and use the Xv interface. This is a list of the video outdrivers in my (functional) installation of Xine:

..../lib/xine/plugins/1.0.0/xineplug_vo_out_aa.so
..../lib/xine/plugins/1.0.0/xineplug_vo_out_dxr3.so
..../lib/xine/plugins/1.0.0/xineplug_vo_out_fb.so
..../lib/xine/plugins/1.0.0/xineplug_vo_out_none.so
..../lib/xine/plugins/1.0.0/xineplug_vo_out_sdl.so
..../lib/xine/plugins/1.0.0/xineplug_vo_out_syncfb.so
..../lib/xine/plugins/1.0.0/xineplug_vo_out_vidix.so
..../lib/xine/plugins/1.0.0/xineplug_vo_out_xshm.so
..../lib/xine/plugins/1.0.0/xineplug_vo_out_xv.so

If you have less than this, then you might ask yourself why.

Where did you get the installables from? If you cooked them yourself, you might like to do it again and take carefull note of the output of the "configure" script. It may very well be that you don't have some of the relevant "-devel" packages installed and so are not cooking the respective vo drivers.

Hope this help

Sorry to take so long on the reply. I see what you are saying. I am not seeing the lines you described either. I got the installables from http://xine.sourceforge.net, so I think that they must be good. Are the "-deve'" packages included in the regular install files or are they a separate package?

You only need the -devel packages if you are going to build something that uses the library concerned. If you already have prebuilt binaries, you don't need the -devel stuff. As for the stuff in the sf.net packages. No idea. I roll my own

Care to share your files?? Will your rolled files work for my comp?? My audio drivers just went to hell last night, so I am in the process of fixing that, but why not take on two tasks at once, right?

Lightbulb I *had* the same problem..

Anvil is definitely on the right track here with his observation that .../lib/xine/plugins/1.0.0/xineplug_vo_out_xv.so is missing. You need to double-check the xine-lib ./configure output, it is not picking up your Xv extensions properly.

I was having the exact same problems on a Sony Vaio - after recompiling the Kernel, I had forgotten to recompile the video card driver - whilst X was actually working ok for the most part, this was causing xine-lib to not build the .so file mentioned above. Best of luck.
