    Has anybody seen this before?

  • @arthurleonardo.ap i have seen this before …

    we need more info about hardware and DE (Desktop Environment) to get a clue on what is wrong at your system…

    https://antergos.com/wiki/miscellaneous/how-do-i-include-system-logs-when-asking-for-help/

    first think you can do is open the videoplayer inside a terminal, and open a second one what is showing live journal:

    journalctl -f while open a video, you can open by command also like this totem ~/Videos/Anni.Hall.mp4

    totem output:

  • nothing related inside journal, and gtk warning from totem is also not relatedto video playback…

    can you try installing gnome-mplayer?

    sudo pacman -S gnome-mplayer

    And try if this one has the same issue…

    also take a look what gstreamer plugins are installed:

    pacman -Qs gstreamer

    [... ~]$ pacman -Qs mp4
    local/libmp4v2 2.0.0-4
        MPEG-4 library
    
  • By any chance it is true thst you are running on intel graphics and wayland?

    echo $XDG_SESSION_TYPE
    

    If command gives out wayland try login to gnome on Xorg from loginmanager lightdm

    Re: Videos not being played properly

    Hi, I am having the same issues with Totem (I have audio but black screen),
    I have antergos installed on X1 Carbon 3rd gen, However Totem works fine in my antergos VM on the same host.

    I switched from lightdm to gdm as lightdm was incompatible with suspend/hibernate.
    echo $XDG_SESSION_TYPE yields: X11 on both host and VM, so I guess issue is not whether wayland or X11 is used.

    lspci | grep -i vga yields:
    00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation HD Graphics 5500 (rev 09)

    Running Totem from terminal on host and VM yields: Gtk-WARNING **: Drawing a gadget with negative dimensions.... so I guess this is irrelevant.

    Nothing of note from journalctl -f

    pacman -Qs mp4 yields:
    local/libmp4v2 2.0.0-4 MPEG-4 library

    pacman -Qs gstreamer yields:0_1517088381578_Screenshot from 2018-01-27 21-21-57.png
    gnome-mplayer plays videos fine.

    Totem has been working without issue for ~ 6 months, as it continues to work on the VM, I imagine an update doesn’t agree with my host configuration, though I can see nothing obvious by grepping error from the logs utility,

    Would someone be able to point me in the direction to look, regarding logs?

  • @moderndayhuman can you try uninstalling gst-vaapi?

    sudo pacman -R gstreamer-vaapi
