Goom doesn't work fullscreen in v0.25

Description

In frontend version v0.25 the Goom visualization in MythMusic seems to work as long as it's not fullscreen, in which case it's just a black screen. Goom is my favorite visualization and I used to be able to run it fullscreen without issue.

I have also noticed this. As a matter of fact, in my case at least, Goom SOMETIMES works initially but eventually just becomes a black screen. It is almost as if in fullscreen mode, Goom has extremely reduced sensitivity.

In the 'visualisation preview' window, Goom functions perfectly.

Only observed since changing to .25. RedHat? Enterprise Linux 6.3, 64 bit.

Since writing last comment, I have updated to MythtTV .26, still on RedHat? Enterprise Linux 64 bit. The same observation stands. In full screen mode, Goom is there but very inactive, ultimately appearing as blank.

Goom gives the same effect on v0.27 too. I've been wanting this to work correctly since I upgraded from v0.23, but it always seems broken. I guess nobody uses this visualization? It used to be the best one.

Doesn't look like those messages are from the MythMusic version of the visualisers.

If I knew where to find information to troubleshoot I'd post something, but monitoring all logs under /var/log/mythtv and /var/log/* I see nothing related to Goom there. I also didn't see the above lines.

Tried setting my video output from VDPAU to almost every other setting just in case that was an issue, and still goom will fade to black after a short time even when not in full visualization mode.

Is there a debug flag I can set somewhere to get more information that could help track down the issue with goom visualizer?

My post was from the frontend log while playing an in-progress DVB-T radio recording.

MythMusic: fix the goom visualizer

  • use the correct image format to convert the Goom buffer to a QImage
  • re-enable the scale factors so you can reduce the cpu utililization Increasing the scale factors will reduce the amount of data to be processed by Goom but that will also make the image more blocky.
  • increase the maximum scale factor to 4 (MythGoom? allows 1, 2 or 4 to be used)

Fixes #11023.
