It looks like there is a X or Xv problem, try selecting the opengl driver in VLC

Thanks for your quick reply.
Well it seems that i just have the "Default" video output module. this could be the problem
How do I get the opengl driver ? I'm quite new in fedora. :D
Thanks

Hello:

Looks to me like you have to maximize the "Preferences" window or use the horizontal scroll bar to see the drop-down button....

Enlarge the window as it is hidden ( the window is to small to display it)

lol yeah ! noow I look stupid hehe.

but then again it still doesn't work. I'll keep trying others output mode. And yeah I think I have a 3d driver cause I'm using beryl.
In fact when i start a video, i can hear the sound (but no image) before the program shut down. And it happens with all the video player I've installed

it's a Intel® Graphic Media Accelerator 945GM Graphic. a built in one (I have a toshiba A100 laptop).
I really don't understand, because the first time I installed fedora 7 (on the same laptop) it was working.... but now, not even once...

Hello:

I do not know what is the best driver for that video card, but you can try to double-check your 3D rendering with:
glxinfo|grep renderIt should return with "direct rendering: Yes". If it says "No", then that may be the problem.

I also suggest that you read this tutorial: http://www.gagme.com/greg/linux/f7-tips.php
It has lots of info on how to set up media players, including VLC, and how/where to get/install all the extra codecs.

If your problem is related to X or Xv or OpenGL, you will have to wait until someone more knowledgeable responds.

Good Luck,
V

I found out what the problem was. It seems like my video card dosen't have enough memory. So when I try to run beryl and a video player, the later crash. I guess integrated graphic cards really do suck... well thanks to the one who tried to help me.
