Xvideo, gmplayer and xawtv goofiness
My graphics driver is ATI with a Radeon 7500 on stock sarge. If I run
gmplayer with xvideo enabled, subsequently xawtv displays no video, only a
black screen. I have to restart xawtv with the "-noxv" option (turning off
xvideo) to see a picture, but this is not a fix because of the unacceptably
low framerate without xvideo.
I can sometimes run both apps successfully if I start xawtv before gmplayer.
Otherwise the only solution I've found is to restart X. At this point I don't
even know how to debug the problem. Any help is appreciated. Let me know if
you want to see any relevant conffiles or log files.
