    VLC with sound but no video


    I've installed VLC and also gone to the Easy Urpmi to install whatever it is that site installs (I think codec?). Basically when I use VLC I get sound but no picture, it just shows up green???

    Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance!

    Execute this
    Code:
    su -
    lspci | grep -i vga
    grep -i driver /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    Post output here.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    You have configured X Server correctly.

    Open VLC Player, Go to Preferences -- Video -- highlight Output Modules.
    Check Advanced Options at the bottom and select X11 video output from the drop-down list.

    Restart VLC Player.

    Hi and Welcome !

    Try Driver "vesa" instead of "intel" in /etc/X11/xorg.conf file.
