MIT Xv extension in gxine.

Postby HermanDegenhart » Fri Jul 11, 2008 7:27 pm

Hey everyone,
When calling up the Gxine Player and going to File/Configure and then to Re-run setup wizards, click next and a window appears with a list of System configuration checks. They are all green, so Oké, except for the last one, the Check for MIT Xv Extension. That one has a red point, telling us something is missing. In order to know, you click the details button and another window appears, telling us: Health Check Results, video_out_xv: No adaptors found. You can improve performance by installing an X11 driver that supports the Xv protocol extension. In the good old days systems use to propose the missing driver and asked permission to install it. But these were pre-modern days and long gone. So we have to figure out ourselves. Does anyone have an idea?
Before you propose, the package X11-utils cannot be the missing link as I have installed that package already. To give a clue, this problem only appears in Mint and Kubuntu but not in Ubuntu. So what's in Ubuntu that's missing in Mint? The health check talks about missing adaptors as well as a missing driver.

What don't you understand? I am talking about the gxine player in Mint.

I asked which Mint
Elyssa does not have the xine version, must be an earlier edition

You mean the gxine player should be removed without replacement?

Mr. Husse, do you always discuss issues this way? But if you want, try Dutch. If you do, be aware that you exclude yourself from the other readers of this forum.

Sorry no Dutch - only English, German and the nordic languages
The problem her is that I'm discussing with someone that misunderstands every answer I give
I have repeatedly asked "which Mint?" - so far no answer and I need that to be able to help

Alright then. I have Elyssa Mint on my computer (Dell Inspiron 6400). I wasn't aware that the differences between Mint distro's are that big. Sorry.

I must say I'm at a complete loss here
Gxine Player and going to File/Configure

In Elyssa Totem uses xine but it has no File menu
mplayer does not use xine (and does not have a file menu)
Come to think of this old topic about mplayer
viewtopic.php?f=42&t=2512&hilit=+x11
There has been differences over time in players....
