VLC Media Player Crashes

I got my jetson nano B01 yesterday.
Today I installed vlc player from the repository.

If I play a 1080p 60fps MP4 file, the VLC crashes.

Actually, with any video file, it crashes. Is this a VLC player issues or something to do with Nano.

Anyone has success running the VLC player ? I see so many YouTube videos running VLC player just fine…

Any other input I can provide ? Thanks in advance

Hi,
We don’t enable hardware decoding in VLC. Not sure why it crashes. My need other users to share experience.

You may consider to try gstreamer or jetson_multimedia_api. Please check the documents:

You can try

nvidia@nvidia-desktop:~$ export DISPLAY=:0
nvidia@nvidia-desktop:~$ nvgstplayer-1.0 --help
nvidia@nvidia-desktop:~$ nvgstplayer-1.0 -i file:///home/nvidia/1080.mp4

You would try to disable omxil VLC plugin:

sudo mv /usr/lib/aarch64-linux-gnu/vlc/plugins/codec/libomxil_plugin.so /usr/lib/aarch64-linux-gnu/vlc/plugins/codec/libomxil_plugin.so.old

Thanks @Honey_Patouceul

yes. Its working now, albeit it is now the same as gnome videos player. the 1080p 60fps video stutters, lags while playing.

Both gstplayer and ffplay (NVDIA accelerated) work fine due to HW acceleration.

Kodi seems to be the only media player that can play videos smoothly even without HW acceleration…
