Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

mplayer (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

As I said in summary, XvMC stopped to work. Mplayer just freeze and shows only black window. kill -9 must be use to stop it. I used http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/index.php/XvMC to get XvMC to work in gutsy. Tested with DVD and DVB-T.

Otuput from mplayer:

Hi pitel,

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. You reported this bug a while ago and there hasn't been any activity in it recently. We were wondering is this still an issue for you? Can you try with the latest development release of Ubuntu? (ISOs are available from cdimage.ubuntu.com)

If it remains an issue, could you also attach a new /var/log/Xorg.0.log?
Thanks in advance.

The output of lspci -vvnn would also be worth having.
