Well, I'd love to get 3.0 into main, but we have that one user getting skips with it. Does anyone else have this issue?

3.0, like mpv, now uses the openGL video output as default instead of xvideo. Maybe switching 3.0 in the settings to use xvideo will fix that.

Can we get your "inxi -Fxz" output, and can you try having 3.0 using the xvideo video output like 2.2.8 does?

Thanks---I remember some people also had problems with hardware video acceleration enabled by default in VLC, though MX may be missing some packages to have that working out of the box for AMD. (a bug?) As I recall, they had to do with va-, libva, and xvba-va-driver packages...maybe we are also missing some va packages for Intel, too. Let me check that out.

VLC 3.0 reinstalled and set to use xvideo. I still get some breaking-up of the video, although not as much. MP4 files seem to be worse than .flv or .vdi but it's difficult to be sure - it's often 2-3 minutes before the first glitch and I can't spend all day watching.

I also tried a couple of the other outputs but could see no difference. I will leave 3.0 installed for now. If there's anything else I can try, let me know.

Have you tried disabling the hardware acceleration in Preferences/Inputs-Codecs?

You also have to restart VLC for any of these video output or other changes to be in effect.

That's what happens when you mix 'n' match outside repositories. :mad:
