This test case tests whether accelerated video works correctly with the Intel video driver, with kernel mode setting enabled. You must be using a video adapter supported by the driver, and Fedora 11 or later (or Rawhide from any time after mid-February 2009).

How to test

  1. Ensure the 'nomodeset' kernel parameter is not enabled in your bootloader configuration
  2. Ensure the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf does not exist, or is a known-good configuration file that uses the 'intel' driver
  3. Shut your system down entirely, then start it up again
  4. Ensure the Package-x-generic-16.pnggnome-media-apps package is installed: yum install gnome-media-apps
  5. Run gstreamer-properties and ensure the video output plugin is set to X Window System (X11/XShm/Xv)
  6. Click Test and observe the test video window
  7. Optionally, play a real video file in Totem (or another video player, ensuring output is set to Xv)
  8. Enable a compositing manager (like Compiz: menu -> System -> Preferences -> Desktop Effects and click Enable Desktop Effects) and repeat the video playback test(s)

Expected Results

  1. Video playback should work correctly (for the gstreamer test, you should see a window with a test pattern and white noise video)
  2. Video should work correctly with a compositing manager active
