Hi all,

maybe I'm loosing something big, but I can't run gstreamer/gplay on a 1366x768 lvds 18bpp panel.

I have an lcd connected to LVDS0 on a custom i.MX6 board.

X runs fine and QT / SDL too.

With both kernel 3.0.35 and 3.10.17 I find that gstreamer displays wrong colors and looses sync when I do a simple gst-launch videotestsrc ! mfw_v4lsink.

Videos played with gplay has the same errors.

The very first impression is that both gstreamer and gplay run at 24bpp.

In ldb.c I've added the lines:

    /* VGA 1366x768 85.5M pixel clk output */
    "VGA-WXGA", 60, 1366, 768, 11696,
    213, 70,
    24, 3,
    143, 3,


I see the correct parameters on kernel command line from /proc/cmdline and the display is correctly selected in ldb_disp_init.

I've tried to change almost all parameters for the video timings, with no luck.

On a 1024x768 or 800x480 LVDS everything runs fine.


Any ideas about this ?
