As far as I know, I'm not running wayland (except that it's used for the
initial log-in screen).
/var/log/Xorg.0.log is multiple days old. Instead, I copied the content
of .local/share/xorg/Xorg.0.log to http://pastebin.com/CygGhZuv
> What's in your ~/.mplayer/config file?
The "example" file provided by building MPlayer. Every line there is
either blank or commented out (except this one: " [protocol.dvdnav] ").
The various parameters that I am putting in -- I'm specifying them on
the command line with which I invoke MPlayer.
[ By the way, when I said I had put in 'threads=6', what I meant was
that it was actually '-lavdopts threads=6' that I put in. And the
kernel on my Fedora 23 system is 4.2.6-301.fc23.i686+PAE ]
I just started using MPlayer on a second system (different software OS:
64-bit Ubuntu 15.10 with 4.2.0-19 lowlatency kernel; different video
card: nvidia GFX 950). Guess what -- I'm seeing the same situation as
on the first system (whenever I use '-vc' to specify the __vdpau codec
that matches the video, MPlayer gives me the "device is incompatible
with this codec" error).
I cannot think of anything which is common to my two systems, but is
different from the systems of those users who have vdpau acceleration
working for MPlayer (me having /usr on a separate partition, perhaps?).
