I recently compiled the latest stable versions of xine-lib (188.8.131.52)
and xine-ui (0.99.5). When I play a video clip, the screen goes black
after a few seconds. It stays black for about 1 second and then
returns to normal for another few seconds and the cycle keeps
It doesn't matter whether the video mode is full screen or windowed.
I have also tried using the output modules xv, xshm, vidix, and
autodetect. None of these make the problem go away. I also tested a
variety of media types (QuickTime, AVI, MPEG, FLV) and it doesn't
matter what kind of media is being played.
This does not happen on Totem.
My system is an HP Compaq dx5150 which is using the radeon module
version 4.3.0 on Xorg server 1.3.0
