Description WuNian 2008-03-18 23:07:36 UTC
2D driver: xvmc branch - 03ccffd5b9b8108166ea143884a1a0a6417f3236
xserver: master tip
drm: master - d18c2c684229ec6923e1a578ae837f34e6b97422

platform: G945 (64 bit system)

When play video with xvmc, then switch VT to text console, the mplayer will stop to play. If play video with xv, we can see mplayer still play when switch to text console.

Reproduce step:
1, start Xorg;
2, mplayer -vo xvmc -vc ffmpeg12mc VTS_01_0.VOB (run it from ssh connection)

3, chvt 1 (run it from another ssh connection)
switch VT successfully, but you can see mplayer stop play.

With mplayer, if you use other video driver(like x11, xv), then you switch to text console, the mplayer continue to play video, after you switch back to X, you can check this.
If mplayer play video by using xvmc driver, then you switch to text console, the mplayer will pause. You can check this after you switch back to X.

If use xine with xvmc: xine -V xvmc $VIDEO_FILE, there is no this bug.
So this may be mplayer bug. Zhenyu, how do you think?
