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

How to test

  1. Ensure the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf does not exist, or is a valid file that uses the nouveau driver. If you are using the live image, ignore this step
  2. Ensure totem is installed: yum install totem
  3. Ensure the Package-x-generic-16.pnggnome-media-apps package is installed: yum install gnome-media-apps
  4. Run gstreamer-properties, go to the Video tab, and set the Default Output Plugin to X Window System (X11/XShm/Xv)
  5. Hit the Test button and observe the test video window for a few seconds
  6. Ensure you have a known-working video file available: for example, this NetworkManager video (45 MB)
  7. Run Totem and play back the test video file you downloaded
  8. 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. Both the gstreamer test video and the Totem video should play smoothly (watch the white noise in the gstreamer test video), in the correct colors. In the Totem video, 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
