Created attachment 67009 It's supposed to say "Xine" ...
Video card: Trident 3DImàge985 4MB Video mode: 1024x768, depth 16 or 24
x.org configuration (slackware-current as of 2012-09-09):
X.Org X Server 1.12.3 Release Date: 2012-07-09 [ 2740.985] (II) Module trident: vendor="X.Org Foundation" [ 2740.985] compiled for 1.12.1, module version = 1.3.5 [ 2740.986] Module class: X.Org Video Driver [ 2740.986] ABI class: X.Org Video Driver, version 12.0
Problem: With normal settings at depth 24, the video output of ffplay and xine is messed up with a split double image in the window and horizontal lines and garbage spilling over to the rest of the screen. See uploaded photo.
At depth 16, the extraneous horizontal lines go away but the internal contents of the window are still messed up.
Poor workaround: Adding the following to xorg.conf avoids the problem but kills video performance.
Section "Module" SubSection "extmod" Option "omit XVideo" EndSubSection EndSection
Other information: The same problem occurred with the following older configuration (Slackware 13.37):
X.Org X Server 1.9.5 Release Date: 2011-03-17 [ 40.449] (II) Module trident: vendor="X.Org Foundation" [ 40.450] compiled for 1.9.2, module version = 1.3.4 [ 40.450] Module class: X.Org Video Driver [ 40.450] ABI class: X.Org Video Driver, version 8.0
I have no data for any other versions.
