    Not able to play videos


    After upgrading to slackware-current version I am unable to play video files using any of the applications (xine,gxine,dragon player) while using kde (4.2.4). However if I switch to other window manager like Xfce everything works fine.

    Is there anyway I can get this working in kde?

    That is strange.. try playing a video through the terminal and see if you get any errors.

    When I play a video file in kde the video is blank but the audio works.

    I tried playing a video file from the terminal using xine,gxine and dragon player in kde and xfce.

    In kde
    1. xine :- exits with an error
    X Error of failed request: BadAlloc (insufficient resources for operation)
    Major opcode of failed request: 134 (XVideo)
    Minor opcode of failed request: 19 ()
    Serial number of failed request: 1990
    Current serial number in output stream: 1991

    2. gxine :- only audio with some warning
    3. dragonplayer :- only audio with some warning

    In xfce
    1. xine :- Works without any warnings or error.
    2. gxine :- Works with some warnings (warning same as that in kde)
    3. dragonplayer :- Works with some warnings (warning same as that in kde)

    It is working now.

    The videos are working when I disable the desktop effects in kde.
