 ok, as a followup to my previous post, i slapped f9 on
my inspiron, then VLC and associated RPMs, popped in a DVD,
it plays nicely on the laptop.

 then, connected an external (samsung WUXGA) flat-panel
monitor via DVI, and the entire laptop display is reflected
nicely on the monitor *except* for the actual DVD image in
the VLC window -- that just shows up as blank, either in
regular or fullscreen mode (in fullscreen mode, the entire
external display is blank, even while the movie is playing
on the laptop).

 i'm no expert at video so, somehow, the DVD image is
not being passed out on DVI, while everything else is.
thoughts?  is there a VLC setting to tweak this?  this is
a dell inspiron 9200 so it's a fairly old system -- at
least a couple years.  but until now, running external
displays off that DVI port has worked just fine.  so
why is the DVD video content being treated this way?

I do not think it is a problem with vlc. There should be a video overlay


What graphics card and which driver do you have?

  ati mobility radeon 9600 M10, and the stock "drm" and "radeon"
modules that come with f9.  this is a fresh install as of this
morning, so i haven't had time to make a mess of it yet.
