Does the problem occur on all user accounts or just yours?
Happens in all accounts. It is interesting though that in my account
I see this notice as mplayer is starting up:
Opening video decoder: [ffmpeg] FFmpeg's libavcodec codec family
libavcodec version 53.35.0 (external)
Mismatching header version 53.32.2
Selected video codec: [ffh264] vfm: ffmpeg (FFmpeg H.264)
I never noticed this before, but when it was working, I didn't look, either.
Also, not in my account but another, there are X11 errors for an
integer value out of range when I go to full screen, but not if the
scale is left alone. I don't remember seeing this before, either.
<pre wrap="">Also, if you run
vlc -v, does it give you any errors in the terminal?
Yes, many, usually having to do with oddities in the video, but
they're all coming out completely blank. One of the reasons I used
VLC at all was that it had better recovery from video glitches than
I'm thinking one of my video drivers or codecs is failing where it
didn't before, but I have reinstalled everything and they're still not
behaving as before.
What graphics card driver do you have? (run <b>sudo lscpi</b> or <b>sudo
lshw -c html > hw.htm</b> if you don't know). If it is a
proprietary one then that can often cause problems (e.g. NVIDIA or
old ATI). What errors does VLC/mplayer give exactly? Mplayer errors
can be turned to very verbose by running <b>mplayer -msglevel</b> <b>all=9.
</b>Vlc should also output some error/warning messages.<br>
