Description sphakka 2021-02-27 13:54:39 UTC
ffplay looks broken with media-video/ffmpeg-4.3.2. Whatever audio, video file or stream I try to play, only get this:

Could not initialize SDL - No available video device
(Did you set the DISPLAY variable?)

SDL is enabled and compiled in, AFAIK.

Comment 1 Sam James archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2021-02-27 17:26:35 UTC
4.3.1 work?
Comment 2 sphakka 2021-02-27 17:30:32 UTC
Don't know, I'll try. But I upgraded from 4.2.4 in which it was already broken.
Comment 3 Ionen Wolkens gentoo-dev 2021-02-27 19:55:36 UTC
Didn't look much into this but I can reproduce with libsdl2[-X]

Try to rebuild libsdl2 with USE=X enabled.
Comment 4 sphakka 2021-03-12 18:05:22 UTC
Yes USE=X on libsdl2 fixes it! Thanks for the tip ^^
