Default Computer freezes when mplayer window off screen + composite problems

Hi!

1: I found a problem, when using mplayer (video playback, xv output). If I move mplayer video window out of sight (over screen resolution), computer freezes.

This only happens if I enable translucency effects in KDE. Don't know if this is directly related to nvidia driver. (I have xorg 6.9)

2: When using translucency, sometimes some weird visual issues are noticed, like: superkaramba themes are »jumping« in front when screen saver is running. Also mplayer video window is corrupted when an application is redrawing something under it (like file copy progress dialog).

We'll wait for an expert, I don't know if this is nvidia or xorg / kde problem.

The composite extension is still under heavy development. It doesn't work together with Xv and GLX. There have been discussions on the xorg lists to what needs to be done to address these problems. They are not really nvidia's fault. Further nvidia marked composite as an experimental feature for reasons, they knew about these problems. (read the driver doc, it talks about Xv/GLX issues)

Just don't use composite till the problems have been fixed in xorg and then I'm sure nvidia will update their drivers to fix the problems.

Nvidia's composite support sucks and should be fixed. Composite is stable by now. GLX and XV are working on my Radeon:

Sorry for the complaints, but it's about time to have it working on my Geforce!

irondog: composite on ati works? Since when? Well, I tried with ati binary drivers on 2nd computer six months ago, but results were extremely poor (corrupted graphics, radeon 9250).
