Still no joy with this video problem

i can play all videos via Firefox no problem can not do TV via FF .

Every application to play TV or a recorded film fails with the same report this
started happening around 2 months ago but have not been able to pin down exactly
which update caused the failure the system is fully updated every day .

Have you googled for "vdpau display vout display error"? I'm asking,
because you didn't mention what exactly you already have done, to pin
down the culprit. Don't read just Arch related posts, consider to also
read e.g. Ubuntu related posts, if Arch related posts shouldn't cover
this issue for the same graphics.
Have you e.g. ensured that regarding the driver everything is ok?

do with the issue.

Hi Ralf .

Yes been there it was the first place i looked when the issue first showed up
one of the problems is i have no real way of knowing exactly when this issue first
occurd althou i update the system every day i do not always use the tv card or
want/need to watch a video .

I am not even sure which package/s would have an effect like this around the same
time i had a cut&paste issue that prevented me doing cut&paste using the mouse that
has now rectified itself but the video issue still keeps me looking for the fix .

Thanks Pete .
