  Do any
videos of type h265 play in vlc?

I only see h264. But I have other videos with the same gst-discoverer-1.0 output that are played normally. I test with these two:

does /NOT/ work in VLC: (14.3MB)

plays normal: (29.8MB)

(meanwhile I'll revert the vlc-beta install as it made in more worse than better...)
Possibly the official vlc will work, otherwise you can at least file a bug. Believe it or not 20170603_124912.mp4 plays in vlc-beta for me but I've got intel graphics. It appears to insist on using hardware codecs as well and I have similar output to what you posted previously but the clip plays so does the other one. When I get time I'll examine the build of the ffmpeg2 update, If you install official vlc and file a bug I can take this further. My bugzilla email is davejplater@xxxxxxxxx

Thank you Dave for your efforts on my problem!

After David Haller's explenations I believe that it is probably my good old Nvidia GeForce GTX 460 that doesn't support the larger (in pixels) video. I see that this card according to wikipedia only supports Nvidia VDPAU Feature Set C, which is up to 1920x1080px.

I have no idea why vlc played all those videos before and now only if I manually select another output method than VDPAU. Maybe some update has changed the behavior of vlc's "auiomatic" settings, or changed the settings from something else to automatic? I don't know.

But for now I consider my case as solved (changing the video output to "OpenGL GLX Videoausgabe (XCB)" ).

But if you think it is really worth trying despite of the given graphics card - and only then :-) - I'll install the official vlc just for testing...
