Display Video in VLC when using compiz is enabled.


For some reason, when compiz is running VLC does not show any video. I found the work around to the issue by following the below instructions

  1. Start VLC and click on Settings -> Preferences.
  2. Expand Video -> Output modules.
  3. Select Output modules, and check the  checkbox at the bottom right that says Advanced options.
  4. Select the option to select a different output device. Pick X11 video output, click on Save.

  2. Worked perfectly! I had to stop and re-start my currently running video, and it displayed fine.

    Thanks a ton for this!
