I tried to use the command line like you have below. I did upgrade the
ivtvdev_drv.o to 0.10.6. I am assuming this has xv support.
When I run the command I get in the bugreport file:
video_out_xv: Xv extension is present but I couldn't find a usable yuv12
Looks like your graphics hardware driver doesn't support Xv?!
main: video driver <xv> failed
