Default vlc and mplayer crash with nvidia-drivers-295.20-r1

Hello,

as told in the subject. Both crash instantly or after a few seconds when accessing or trying to play a video-dvd. Strange enough, xine doesn't seem to be affected.


Seems to me to be related to:
https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=404261

So I recompiled nvidia-drivers-290.10-r2.

Prob. xine isn't configured to use hw acceleration

It is more general a bug in libnvidia-tls.so.295.20. gnome-shell users
have problems too.

Downgrading seems to be the only solution atm. nVidias forum
(http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/) is full of bug reports.

Actually mplayer and xine claim to use vdpau and vlc doesn't. But because

I did the best I could anyway.

Hmm, no problems at all here with the 295.20 driver. I'm on ~amd64 though.
