Recently I upgraded my machine to Ubuntu Jaunty(9.04), and believe me its superb. The boot time is pretty less, everything seems to work perfectly. Except the video. I am unable to play any video file in any player. I am using Intel 845GLAD motherboard(integrated Graphics card).
$> lspci -nn | grep VGA
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller : Intel Corporation Mobile 945GM/GMS, 943/940GML Express Integrated Graphics Controller [8086:27a2] (rev 03)
And I searched over the internet to find out, whether its just me or anybody else is also facing the same problem. Yes there are many. So I tried the popular solution:https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ReinhardTartler/X/RevertingIntelDriverTo2.4. Then the video starts getting played, compiz effects seem to work properly. But suddenly rendering was not getting done properly. Many horizontal lines were getting displayed on my screen, So I moved back to latest intel video driver. How do I get my video working on Jaunty?
Update:One more reason why I dont want to roll back to previous version of Intel driver is, the Multiple Monitor support. Its pretty good and seamless in Jaunty(with the default/latest intel driver), but not the same in Previous version. Please help me.
Update: I want a solution other than upgrading my kernel to 2.6.30.
