Blank screen after stopping video
#1
Exclamation 
I've been having a strange problem with video playback for the past few weeks. If I play back a video (either movie or TV) and stop the video midway through playback, I get sent back to the XBMC movie or TV library screen, but everything is solid white. I can't see a background, graphics, or any of the text on the screen. Pretty much just solid white. The only way to get out of the white screen is to either kill the xbmc process or replay the video. Replaying the video actually takes you back to the video, which displays properly.

If I instead let the video play all the way through and exit on its own, I'm taken back to the library screen where everything displays just fine. No white screen.

I'm not sure I can trace things back to where it got broken for me (it wasn't always like this), but there have been so many other fixes in the past month or so that going back isn't an option. I'm just wondering if anyone else is seeing the same issue?

I'm currently running the 14725-hardy ppa (i386), but I have tried various ppas over the past weeks and have even built myself from scratch from svn -- regardless, I see the same issue. I am using a GeForce FX 5500 video card and have tested with various skins -- not skin-dependent.

Anyone seeing a similar problem or have any idea for how to go about debugging?

Thanks! -Dave

Thanks for posting the debug log onesojourner. FWIW, I'm also using Ubuntu 8.04, up-to-date as of 8/11/08.

Since others are seeing the same problem, you should probably submit a bug report to our trac. Please use the official binary Atlantis release (not your own personal build from SVN) and be sure to include ALL of the information we ask for in http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=34655.

Hey guys. I have an issue that is similar and may or may not be related to this. When I hit x to stop a movie everything freezes. I don't get a white screen but the image of the movie stays on the screen and I have to kill xbmc from the command line to get my screen back. If I switch terminals and switch back the screen is black instead of white.

Here is the post about the issue:
http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=35686

ignore the bit about textures as that issue HAS been fixed in svn. I have already posted a bug report on trac. You can find that here:
http://trac.xbmc.org/ticket/4508

i am in the process of tracking down exactly which revision this started happening. I know that the last revision I have that works perfectly is 14180 then for a few revisions I was getting horrible compiling errors about aclocal and mismatched versions. I know that somewhere in the 14600ish range xbmc does compile but I get the errors above, ie freezes on killing the video. I will be working backwards throughout the day to try and find out where the error occurred. If you guys think this IS the same issue feel free to add to my trac report or to help me find the revision where the error occurred. If you don't think they are related then I apologize for adding this useless post to your thread Wink

My System:
Gentoo 2007.0
2.6.23.8 i686
NVidia GeForce? 8400
Intel Celeron 3.0ghz

I would like to note I'm unable to reproduce the problem on a mac mini in OS X.

From what I have gleaned from browsing through everyone so far who has reported the problems is that it seems to be linux specific. I am obviously not a developer so I will leave the final judgment to the experts Wink Cheers.

Hello!

I'm experincing similar problems with a white screen, but my xbmc doesn't hang. I can shut it down by pressing 's' and then 'Enter'. I can also just hit 'Enter' to replay the video.

Info:

xbmc version: svn rev 14967 (webserver disabled)
Skin: PM3
OS: Ubuntu 7.10, amd64
Graphics card: Nvidia Geforce FX5200
Graphics driver: nvidia proprietary, 169.07

My steps to reproduce problem

1. Start up xbmc
2. Navigate to video folder, in this case a samba mount
3. Start video playback
4. Press 'x' to stop playback.

Debug log: http://www.pastebin.ca/1175929

Best regards,

Pär

Success! Looks like my problem has something to do with the webserver. After turning the webserver off xbmc no longer freezes when I stop movies. You guys might want to give that a try to see if that fixes your problem as well. Thanks to Elupus for looking into the problem and TheWoert for the good catch.
