Description lameventanas 2014-08-04 06:49:51 UTC
I have terrible tearing when using mplayer -vo xv in my htpc system.

A description of my system:
- Nvidia GeForce 9400 (rev b1) pci-id: 10de:086a
- HDMI port connected to a TV
- linux 3.15.0
- xorg-xf86-video-nouveau 1.0.10
- xorg-server 1.14.15
- mplayer 2014-02-06

There is no window manager.

Things I have tried without success:
1. In xorg.conf, section "Device": option "GLXVBlank" "true"
2. In xorg.conf, section "Extensions": option "Composite" "disable"
3. In xorg.conf, section "Extensions": option "RENDER" "disable"

I believe recent changes to the ddx and kernel have improved this. Please update to xf86-video-nouveau 1.0.11 and kernel 3.17.x and retest. GLXVBlank defaults to true now, I believe.

However it's at least a little odd that xvinfo is returning Adaptor #0: "Intel(R) Textured Video" -- nouveau returns different strings. Perhaps you ran xvinfo on the wrong screen?

Thanks, that is great news, but I'm having other problems with Xvideo (bug 51579), so it is hard to test at the moment (and I haven't updated to kernel 3.17.x yet).

Yes, the xvinfo is from the wrong screen, product of ssh + automatic x11 forwarding (I love that feature).

Here is the correct information, in case it helps:
