Xlib: extension "XVideo" missing on display ":0.0".

Post by Dmitry Litvintse » Tue, 09 Jan 2001 07:23:39



Hi!

Could anybody advise me on what I do have to install  to get rid of this

messages:

Xlib:  extension "XVideo" missing on display ":0.0".
Xlib:  extension "SHAPE" missing on display ":0.0".

I have XFree 4.0.1 installed with NVdriver kernel module and
nvidia_drv.o X driver.  Videocard is nvidia Riva TNT2 32MB.

I don't see any modules like 'XVideo*' anywhere in
/usr/X11R6/lib/modules.

thanks in advance,
Dmitry Litvintsev

It is not some that you have to install.  It is an X server extention.
THe X server (and the hardware too) must support the necessary features
to provide Xvideo functionality.  run xdpyinfo when you are in X and see
if Xvideo is listed under extentions.  I'm not familiar with nvidia
hardware, so I'm not sure if it supports XV.

using Xvideo
------------
XFree86 4.0 comes with a new X11 extention for video support.
To use Xvideo you have to load the video4linux module into the X-Server.
Just adding 'Load "v4l"' to the Modules section of XF86Config will do.
Hope this help.
