    Also when you do these changes type this as root in a terminal:

    in order amdpcsdb to record your changes. This also adds UseFastTLS option and maybe it can help too
    Thanks djdoo!!

    The RENDER extension was enabled as it's built-in, but I've set Textured2D, TexturedXrender and UseFastTLS as you said, and guess what? Now I can watch videos using XVideo output! That's incredible!

    Anyway, I will try different configurations in order to isolate the problem to one of those settings.

    But when I run Totem it gets segfaulted.

    totem La.Grande.Illusion.\(1937\).FS.B\&amp\;W.CRiTERiON .DVDRip.DivX5-Wolfman.avi

    No accelerated IMDCT transform found
    sh: jackd: not found
    The program 'totem' received an X Window System error.
    This probably reflects a bug in the program.
    The error was 'BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)'.
    (Details: serial 78 error_code 2 request_code 140 minor_code 19)
    (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
    that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
    To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
    option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
    backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)

    Thanks for reading.
    The same here, Hobbes...

    According to lspci, my card is an "ATI Technologies Inc RV516", a Radeon X1550 actually. I'm currently running Debian Lenny, linux 2.6.24-1-amd64, with Xorg 7.2-5, and a LCD monitor @ 1440x900.

    With fglrx version 8.47.1, I get "BadValue" errors and X restarts when trying to use xvideo output in VLC and MPlayer, with and without composite enabled. The same goes for gstreamer-properties when testing video output. Also GDM hangs at logout and it doesn't stops when shutting down the service by hand.

    I tried reinstalling, deinstalling, purging, cleaning and reconfiguring fglrx packages, with no luck so far. I should try setting another screen resolution, but for now I went back to 8.45.5 and it's blocky xv... Guess I'll have to wait 'til another version.

    What DM are you using as login manager? I had the same problem with KDM on Kubuntu and someone in this forum (even in this thread) suggested me to check /etc/ati/authatieventsd.sh - there was bad path to Xorg/KDM authority files. Since I've changed it to proper path the problem with hangs on logoff disappeared.

    No one would help me?!

    this only happens with compiz on!

    this driver is working fine (a little slow but fine).....

    i though i will never say this... keep working _ATI_, you are in the right path

    Thiago, the issue here is that you are using the overlay under a compositing manager. Here's what happens :

    1. Video driver paints a rectangle in the video window in a solid "key" colour (eg. magenta).

    2. Display circuitry switches to use the image stored in the overlay area whenever it sees the key colour. Video driver displays video in the overlay area.

    3. Compositing manager writes over your nice key colour rectangle with desktop background, killing your video image.

    4. When you move the window, the key colour rectangle is redrawn, so video reappears briefly until the compositing manager wipes it out again.

    There are different ways to stop the compositing manager from stomping your video window. One is to switch away from KDE/Compiz when playing video by wrapping the player app in a short script, another is to play full screen and tell KDE/Compiz to stop doing its compositing thing when you have a full screen app.

    The real solution is to use the Textured Video option since that *can* work with a compositing manager, but I don't think the TexturedVideo option works with tvtime right now. We support one set of video formats, tvtime supports another set of video formats, and there seems to be no common ground today.

    Compiz has a video plug-in which AFAIK uses OpenGL to display video under the compositor, but I think it needs a player patch (at least it does for mplayer).
    I've got exactly the same thing with overlay output of video from kdetv (even without compiz).
    When kdetv starts I get black screen - helps for that only resolution change. Then the video is displayed without problems to the time when I move/resize some windows (kdetv or others) - the overlay video flashes (looks like video window is redrawn all the time) and sometimes goes black, too. It flashes more when some window is on top of the overlay video (kdetv) or even animated mouse cursor on top of overlay window (for example when running an other application). When I move overlay window the overlay video is moving after the window (not accurate in window).
    It doesn't happen without overlay or with opensource radeon driver.

    Edit:
    Yesterday I've noticed that xrandr setting modes stopped working for me - everything looks ok from the xrandr command line (even verbose is saying that it's setting mode) but video resolution doesn't change. I've used it in bash script with kdetv to get rid of this black screen when running kdetv without need to use ctrl + alt + "+"/"-". This key combination works fine with resolution change and before yesterday/maybe day before xrandr worked fine.
