Description ben mcmonagle 2020-12-26 06:06:00 CET
Description of problem: when trying to play a .mp4 file, xine exits silently.
invoking via terminal gives the following:

xine ./Videos/file_name.mp4
This is xine (X11 gui) - a free video player v0.10.1.
(c) 2000-2019 The xine Team.
Failed to open VDPAU backend libvdpau_va_gl.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
X Error of failed request:  BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)
  Major opcode of failed request:  151 (XVideo)
  Minor opcode of failed request:  13 ()
  Value in failed request:  0x2
  Serial number of failed request:  1954
  Current serial number in output stream:  1957
~ $ 

attempting to playa .mov gives a similar response:

$ xine ./Videos/file_name.MOV
This is xine (X11 gui) - a free video player v0.10.1.
(c) 2000-2019 The xine Team.
Failed to open VDPAU backend libvdpau_va_gl.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Not a JPEG file: starts with 0x28 0x00
~ $ 

both files play without issue via VLC and Videos

Hi, thanks for reporting this bug.

Note that xine has also a tainted version.
Do you have installed this version?

urpmq -i xine-ui

xine-ui-0.99.12-3.mga8.src.rpm
xine-ui-0.99.12-3.mga8.tainted.src.rpm

Also, VDPAU is for hardware acceleration decoding facility.
Can you tell about your hardware by do:
$ inxi -G

tainted binaries + Mesa drivers updated for a Intel chipset.

Theoretically I should say that this must just works.
It is not the case.

The better you can even make is provide a link to problematic video to be tested also.

Note really sure it is belong to xine-ui rather xine-lib1.2
Did these videos well played before?

tainted/release/xine-ui-0.99.12-3.mga8.tainted.src.rpm
tainted/release/xine-lib1.2-1.2.11-1.mga8.tainted.src.rpm
