I’m experiencing freezes in the video when playing video.
I get this when using Youtube on Chrome or Firefox and I also tried downloading some AVI file to the desktop and got the same result.
I have a P1 Gen2 and installed the Nvidia drivers. I’m using Xorg and not Wayland (Nvidia says it’s not safe I understand).
As for the kernel I had to downgrade to 5.1.20 because 5.2.x (6, 7 and 9) prevented my computer from suspending properly.
Here’s a screenshot of Gnome Tweaks extensions window. Think any of these might do it?
I’m new to Linux in general but I think at one time I enabled an extension that showed the seconds of the current time and it caused higher CPU usage so you may be right…
Thanks for the answer.
You are right, my driver indeed doesn’t support the card, that’s probably the problem.
However, the RPM Fusion repo (Nvidia) from which I installed the driver doesn’t seem to contain the vesion I need.
Do you think it’s still worth installing the vdpau utilities you mentioned?
