And did it again, from Mesa on, to change the configure options.

Other choices sometimes work, but do not give full-screen. Only one
still image of the video, with a small square were vlc was playing the
video in the original small size.

Failed again, as I expected.


Play a video with vlc, change to full-scree, restore back to first
window size, close.

Now launch with gst. When I move around the window, the black color
starts to change to the last image of full-screen vlc, and when I reach
the point where vlc was before closing, gst starts displaying the video
with the window size, if I succeed to centre gst window and video,
moveing off, to original window place, it gets back to black (sound is
good, always playing). It is as if the video images and the gst window
could not align by themselves.

I am trying to solve this problem, that is the reason I have not been
taking tickets. Sorry for that. And thank you very much, Igor, perfect

I am thinking about two alternatives (very similar).

1. Reinstalling all graphics related packages in this system (however,
static images are ok).

2. Dumping the system and starting a new one.
