Replying to mdean:

We really need a proper backtrace for this one, as described at and and .

I had tried to install debugging packages as was documented in "Debugging with Ubuntu packages":

sudo apt-get install mythtv-dbg mythplugins-dbg Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done E: Couldn't find package mythtv-dbg

Removing inline glibc backtrace from the description to make the ticket readable and attaching as a file (just to preserve the original information).

gdb backtrace has been provided, as requested.

Resolution: fixed

This looks like a VDPAU issue, based on the backtrace and the error just before the backtrace in bt2.txt:

2010-01-10 13:02:35.350 VDPAU Error: Error at util-vdpau.cpp:1364 (#3, An invalid handle value was provided.)

But since util-vdpau.* has been removed from trunk in the VDPAU refactoring, this issue has likely been fixed in trunk.

I'm closing the ticket as fixed, but if you can reproduce the crash on trunk (or on 0.23, when released), please open a new ticket. Thanks.
