Note: the svn tree now (r. 7065) implements the possiblity to select the GL video output module in the preferences menu.

xvimagesink is indeed a XVideo output module. You can try to specify the standard X11 image sink instead, through Edit/Preferences/Video Player/Video Output.

If you want to try GL video output, you can replace the 'ximagesink' string in advene/player/gstreamer.py (line 189) by 'glimagesink' and see if it works too.

I am running the 0.44 sources. The debian package caused some nasty problems - it does not work on ubuntu maverick - so I eventually managed to forcibly uninstall it, and used the source version instead.

gst-launch is able to play the file.

In the log there is this message:
gstreamer: using xvimagesink

If the "xv" in that message stands for XVideo, this is probably the reason for the hang. The xorg graphics driver I'm using (VirtualBox display driver) does not support XVideo. (High performance video output can be achieved using OpenGL rendering - at least, that's what mplayer does.)

Alright, it makes more sense. Since Advene automatically starts playing the movie, I did not see why it should hang when pressing the Play button, it should hang before. Now, there is a movie playing issue.

More questions to help pinpoint the problem:

- are you running the 0.44 debian package, or from the svn sources?

- could you try playing the file through the following command:

gst-launch-0.10 playbin uri=file:///home/user/file.avi

and see if it works.

- is there anything that seems useful in the ~/.advene/advene.log file?

I already noted that it's Linux in the form. Specifically, it's Ubuntu Karmic.

It's an mp4 file, H264 codec.

The entire program hangs.

I tried another video file with exactly the same result.

On the konsole it says:

(advene:7649): GStreamer-CRITICAL **: Failed to deactivate pad qtdemux1:sink, very bad

This is printed after I associate the file, but before I press the play button.

Sorry, I cannot really do anything with this bug report. I would need to have at least the following information:
- which platform (Mac OS X, linux, windows 7, etc)
- which kind of video (.avi, .mov, etc) and ideally which codec
- do other videos function or is the bug present for all videos
- how does it hang (simply does not play, or the interface becomes blank/unresponsive)
