Video output issue


#1

Having recently updated to the latest Debian, I am encountering some video playback issues. I installed MPV to play a video and while I hear the audio, the video window is just a black box.

I then installed Kodi and the same issue was exhibited. Here’s some Kodi error:

libGL error: unable to load driver: per_dri.so
libGL error: driver pointer missing
libGL error: failed to load driver: per
libGL error: unable to load driver: sweats_dri.so
libGL error: swrast

And MPV generated a whole series of logging information but not quite sure what is and isn’t pertinent. Has anybody else had video playback issues and how best to resolve this? As an aside, html5 videos from youtube plays fine.

It sounds like both mpv and kodi are attempting to render the video using graphics features that are not supported on Debian for Bubblegum-96.

Try experimenting with different video output drivers: https://mpv.io/manual/stable/#video-output-drivers

Perhaps try x11 driver first to check I’m right, after that hunt for something faster…
