    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:

    (totem:5531): Gtk-WARNING **: Drawing a gadget with negative dimensions. Did you forget to allocate a size? (node slider owner GtkScale)
    
  • 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

  • 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
