Flicker during playback - babazoid - 2007-08-21 16:48
Just got the latest SVN compiled and things are coming along nicely!
I have a few issues that are preventing me from using XBMC-Linux right now, I'm wondering if everyone is having them or if it's just me...
1. When I play any movie file there is a lot of flickering in the playback. It seems to somehow be related to the OSD... Is there a setting I am missing or is this just a bug in the current SVN that is being worked on?
2. SDL_VIDEO_FULLSCREEN_HEAD="1" is being ignored. In order to launch XBMC on my secondary display I have to move the mouse over and launch it using ALT-F2 or in a terminal window from the actual physical screen... otherwise it just shows up on screen 0.
Any input/help would be appreciated! Thanks folks.

XBMC for Linux Discussions General purpose forum for topics related to XBMC Linux port, (sorry but we do not yet accept bug-reports, support-request or suggestions for new features). Later on we might split this forum into separate subforums

Second page of the Linux port project here:
About the second paragraph at the top...
"Note to XBMC end-users! Please understand that this Linux port project is not yet mature enough for you as an end-user to play with. We can not yet give you an ETA as to when it will be useful for end-users. Respect that we can not accept any bug-reports or feature/function-requests for this Linux port yet, nor do we offer support to end-users. If you as end-users have any general questions or need to get something off your chest about this then please direct that towards the existing XBMC Linux port end-user discussion topic-thread in our community-forum."

I am also experiencing this issue, and have had this since the project started,
but I don't complain about it,
I'm thinking more of looking into the code, and tracking the issue down myself,
coz that's what XMBC-Linux needs right now.

Have you tried Sync with VBlank (or whatever it is called)? Is what you're seeing actually flickering or tearing?
- Skindred - 2007-08-22 17:34
it's like it keeps reloading parts of the screen,
big triangular forms that keep apearing,
and it seems it's only when it's being passed to the graphics card,
because a printscreen wont capture the defect...
I'll try grabbing some more later today,
I'll post them back...
And I'll try you're suggestion!

This exact same thing happened to me before I installed the nvidia acceleration drivers.
Try compiling with --no-opengl I think and it should work.
Or get the 3d acceleration working linux and this may also fix the problem.

as well (without the dollar sign), see what happens...

I wasn't submitting a bug report, or telling anyone "OMFG FIX TEH PROBLEMZ."
I understand it's alpha, beta or whatever code -- I was simply wondering if anyone here could help me fix my flicker problem... perhaps I was simply doing something wrong that had nothing to do with the fact that XBMC is alpha... I just wanted to see if anyone else had the same experience.
