#12944 closed Bug Report - Crash (Upstream Bug)

mythfrontend not working: vdpau permission incorrect in 20304.132-0ubuntu0.16.04.2

Reported by: german.eichberger@… Owned by: JYA
Priority: major Milestone: unknown
Component: MythTV - Video Playback Version: Unspecified
Severity: high Keywords:
Cc: Ticket locked: no

Description

Running mythfrontend on affected system gives blank screen for video playback and then crashes. Running mythfrontend as root mitigates the problem but still not a good solution.

This is an nvidia driver problem, the workaround is to downgrade the nvidia drivers until such time as a fixed driver is released.

Therefore closing this issue
