Kaffeine not show video and audio only in dvtv

SOLVED

New installation on manjaro and update . I install kaffeine for watch tv
Kaffeine find the tv channel but, when i try to play , only appear the name of channel and the program playing at the moment but no video e not audio
The same program play normally video streaming
I have installed and removed many times
Any idea ?
thanks and regards
piero

I think this is because of the latest version of vlc (3.0.4-1), that provides the vlc-lib that kaffeine uses for dvb-t. Try going back to vlc 3.0.3.r1-2, link below
https://archive.archlinux.org/packages/v/vlc/vlc-3.0.3.r1-2-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz
install with
sudo pacman -U /fullpath/vlc-3.0.3.r1-2-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz

VLC issue posted here

Thanks Tim but the system not find that you have posted
sudo pacman -U /fullpath/vlc-3.0.3.r1-2-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz
In any case i reinstall the system and I try before update (Vlc 3.0.3 ) and not work
I think is a bug in kaffeine
I have find this in the forum
https://www.mail-archive.com/kde-bugs-dist@kde.org/msg49079.html
in any case this is the diagnostic

That’s because “fullpath” is a variable, meaning the location where you downloaded the file (link) to. Let me explain in greater detail.

Download the old package via link below
https://archive.archlinux.org/packages/v/vlc/vlc-3.0.3.r1-2-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz
and then do (in a terminal, such as konsole etc)
sudo pacman -U /fullpath/package
change the /fullpath/package to where the file downloaded to
on my system it is
sudo pacman -U /home/tim/vlc-3.0.3.r1-2-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz
(you don’t literary type in /fullpath/package)
In most terminal programs you can just drag and drop the file in after typing
sudo pacman -U
It will ask you for your password (normal procedure with pacman)
Until this problem is fixed you should use this command to update your system
sudo pacman -Syu --ignore=vlc

If you use Octopi
File>Install Local Package

good morning everyone and thank you very much for the information
When I uninstalled kaffeine I saw that the problem was not solved, so I thought it was the fault of a kernel update until I read it to you.
Solved the problem in my case, unclaring vlc and back to vlc-nightly.

Many thanks again and have a great day

To :- pierreb
My kde manjaro system is up to date. The problem is with vlc 3.0.4-1 . My kaffeine works fine after vlc downgrade (or change to nightly version), even though I get all this junk reported.

I don’t need a driver for realtek RTL2832U it is in the kernel. My last post just illustrates that you get a lot of garbage from kaffeine/vlc that doesn’t mean there are bugs.

good morning timsong
OK, I had understood a problem with tv.
I found this out there … it looks a lot like what happens to you:

https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=903504

I suppose you have tried your own solutions … change to private graphics driver ?, change in desktop effects (compositor)opengl2 by xrender (kde) … I do not know, in my avermedia pci it does not reproduce the same as you, but it is possible that when I used kde I would give the same messages … do you use an integrated graphic chip ?, I do not know the subject …

Finally, have a good day, I do not think the problem is very important, is it?

FIXED

The fix is to install aribb24
sudo pacman -Sy aribb24

Solved
The solution is that of manjaromanyarolibre
Change VLC with vlc-nightly

Thanks at ALL
REGARDS
piero

Or you can just wait for the next version of vlc. Arch linux are aware of the problem so the next version of vlc should have aribb24 added as a dependancy. Continuing to use vlc rather than vlc-nightly will offer greater stability in the long run. The choice is yours…

ok … thank you very much, it’s very good to know it timsong

I wish you a happy day to all … live manjaro !!! …

15-septiembre-2018

confirmed timsong
installed vlc + aribb24 solves the problem also here with avermedia, thank you very much
