[Solved] mplayer-cli fails under Xfbdev in TC11
« on: August 10, 2020, 11:08:50 AM »
Hi, Core people!

I am using Xfbdev, and in TC10 mplayer worked without any problems both under X and in command-line too. But in TC11 mplayer fails under X with:
Code: [Select]
Xlib:  extension "XVideo" missing on display ":0.0".
under command line with -vo fbdev mplayer silently dies with exit code 1.
I've tried both repo extension mplayer-cli.tcz and tried building mplayer using get_mplayer.tcz from TC10 repo (workes fine in TC10) . Errors are the same.
What were the changes for fbdev in TC11 (mplayer fails under command line too) , and can something be done with this issue?

I will be grateful for any advices.

Regards!

EDIT: May it be kernel issue?
EDIT2: Sorry, i didn't mentioned that it is x86 version.

-vo xv requires Xvideo, which tinyx does not have. Use -vo x11 on tinyx.
-vo fbdev requires a framebuffer with nothing else running, ie no Xfbdev, but a pure console.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

@curaga, thanks  for pushing me to the right way!

The problem were wrong settings in ~/.mplayer/config. I don't know, what was wrong with them, but they broke even direct demands for "-vo fbdev" in the CLI invocation of mplayer, and influenced mplayer-cli.tcz too. I was not correcting them, i've deleted bad file and made the new one correct. The bad file was placed here by get_mplayer.sh script from get_mplayer.tcz, so, guys, if You will use this extension don't agree to write the proposed config, "optimized" for low-end computers, better make Your own config. In general, mplayer_custom.tcz from TC10 repo creates working 1.3 version of mplayer for TC11, You only need to change ncurses to ncursesw in mplayer_custom.tcz.dep file. I use CLI-only version, no OSD, no GUI.

Thanks again, this was my bad, sorry for distracting You with the silly questions.
