Description

This test case tests whether XVideo-accelerated video playback is successful with the Nouveau driver.


How to test

  1. Enable the nouveau driver. You may need to install the driver package, and download this file and install it as /etc/X11/xorg.conf
  2. Ensure totem is installed: yum install totem
  3. Run gstreamer-properties, go to the Video tab, and set the Default Output Plugin to X Window System (X11/XShm/Xv)
  4. Hit the Test button and observe the test video window for a few seconds
  5. Ensure you have a known-working video file available: for example, this NetworkManager video (45 MB)
  6. Run Totem and play back the test video file you downloaded
  7. Try moving the playback window around, pausing, skipping through the video forwards and backwards, and switching to full screen mode and back (f key)

Expected Results

  1. The video should play smoothly, in the correct colors, pausing and skipping and switching to and from full screen should work with no delays and no kind of corruption to the video or the rest of the desktop
