Does anyone else, in TV mode, have the video fade to white while buffering before the video plays? It causes quite a glare. The pre-compiled AppImage from knapsu doesn't do this (the video fades to black).

A clean build usually fixes it - I'm running the latest version with no modifications.

Yeah, well, broken checksums are really annoying. IIRC I could not update it the last few weeks...

Is there a workaround for this?

Hi! There's a duplicate launcher in this package: the player tar file contains plexmediaplayer.desktop, that has the extra launcher options for full-screen and tv while it forces the arguments --tv and --fullscreen at launch, and this repository adds the plex-media-player.desktop which just launches the executable.

Is it possible to merge the two into just one? Maybe without the forced arguments as it's possible to configure that behaviour from the application. I can try to come up with a patch if needed.

Yeah sorry, clean build fixed it. Thank you!

First try to build failed for me too... I got to delete cache files from temp folder and do a clean build. That was the fix. @BrunkBeard - did you do a clean build?

degeberg commented on 2019-08-27 15:28

Is it still a problem? I updated the sha512sums and it works for me on a clean checkout of the package repo. If that doesn't work, then I have no idea what's going on.

BrunkBeard commented on 2019-08-27 15:10

Has anyone figured out how to fix that error?

Confirming the same issue
