I am working on Linux FC8. My video card is nVidia GeForce FX 5200
When I run:
[gastonv@telenetPC ~]$ mplayer -tv driver=v4l2:outfmt=i420:normid=1:input=2:brightness=50 -vc rawi420 -vo x11 tv://
then the stream is not stable, it is heavy twinkling, So it is not possible to watch it a long time.
My: [gastonv@telenetPC ~]$ cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Section "Device"
Identifier "Videocard0"
Driver "nvidia"
Option "AddARGBGLXVisuals" "True"
Option "RenderAccel" "True"
# TV Out Setup
Option "TVOverScan" "0.6"
Option "TwinView" "True"
Option "TwinViewOrientation" "Clone"
Option "SecondMonitorHorizSync" "30-50"
Option "SecondMonitorVertRefresh" "60"
Option "TVStandard" "PAL"
Option "TVOutFormat" "SVIDEO"
Option "ConnectedMonitor" "CRT, TV"
Option "MetaModes" "1280x1024; 1024x768; 800x600; 640x480"
Option "AddARGBGLXVisuals" "True"
Please do you know what can be the reason why it happens?
Many thanks in advance,
Gaston Verhulst

I think twinkling is not the right word, perhaps better I can describe it as flickering.
I had installed mplayer with yum:
[gastonv@telenetPC ~]$ yum list installed | grep mplayer
mplayer.i386 1.0-0.88.rc2.lvn8 installed
mplayer-codecs.i386 3:20061022-1 installed
mplayer-codecs-extra.i386 3:20061022-1 installed
mplayer-doc.i386 1.0-0.88.rc2.lvn8 installed
mplayer-gui.i386 1.0-0.88.rc2.lvn8 installed
