Description Nuno Silva 2017-06-10 15:11:17 UTC
With media-video/ffmpeg-3.2.4, any attempt to play a video or a stream with ffplay fails, with the error

    SDL: could not set video mode - exiting

With media-video/ffmpeg-2.8.10, ffplay works as expected.

Does it work with the other versions?
Comment 2 Nuno Silva 2017-06-11 12:26:06 UTC
ffplay from ffmpeg-3.3.2 (~amd64) does start and does not show that error, although it seems to be unable to play HLS streams as smoothly as ffmpeg-2.*.
