No video with XBMC 9.11-b1 [log posted] - freja57 - 2009-11-23 19:48
I was very pleased to see how much faster version 9.11-b1 worked on my old PC which I use as Media Center and already worked fine with the stable version 9.04.
But unfortunatelly the videoplayer is not working properly now. I get a white screen, but sound is ok; also the controls are visible. But where the picture should be the screen is pure white.
Also when I view pictures, in between two images in the slideshow there is a few seconds of nervously flickering colored bars.
My PC has a SiS Mirage Graphics chipset (662 I believe); OS is windows XP SP 3.
A said before: the old XMBC version worked alright (with some movies some striping in the screen when much activity was shown -as if the processor could nog quite keep up refhreshing the image).
I was looking for the option to use an external player for the time being, but can't seem to find where to enable that. I already downgraded again back to 9.04, but after that my movie-library was not working properly anymore. At least I was able to view my films again (not in Library mode).
Anyone a helping suggestion to get things going again? Any help more than welcome.
Thanks in advance for you reactions. Keep up the good (not to say: excellent!) work!

The big change was from using OpenGL to using DirectX. Somewhere along the way I also started getting all white video on my intel graphics powered laptop. Unfortunately I think it has to do with old crappy video drivers and lack of proper current directX support. A ticket has already been filed.

I have the same problem on my notebook with intel 855 GFX.
Trying new drivers - freja57 - 2009-11-24 23:14
Thanks for your reactions. I already downloaded newer drivers for my SiS chipset, but they didn't do the trick. I will keep trying newer updates if I can find them and keep you posted. Meanwhile I use an external player for playing my movies, because the speed and crispier picture this new release gives me I like very much.

I encountered the same problem.
I use a old P4 machine as htpc.
Since it does not have a AGP slot i use the on-board intel GPU.
XBMC always worked a bit choppy on this machine, so i was happy with the launch of 9.11 b1, the interface now works like a charm.
However, when i try to watch any video it get a white picture. (Click here for a screenshot)
Sounds works fine and the interface also shows perfectly.
My video card is the: Intel 82845G Graphics Controller
Latest drivers date from 21-6-2005 (188.8.131.5242) i experimented with older drivers dating back to 2003 but they didn't make any difference.

I've had problems with watching video on the 9.11-b1 release aswell. My system kept restarting everytime i tried watching video. Then i rolled back from XP Service Pack 3 to 2 and that did the trick. Maybe this will be a help to anyone.

I just finished trying this.
I did a complete reinstall of windows xp sp2.
No update's, no patches, no other software.
Installed the latest video-drivers and lan drivers from a usb-drive, and installed xbmc.
Tried playing some dvd's, avi's and network streams.
Same result, white screen.

Perhaps some dxdiag information would help the devs on what is supported dx-wise by the card itself?
I just read in other forums that it helped to troubleshoot why they were getting white screens in some of the online mmorpgs.
