Watching Videos with new OpenGL driver

Hi

I've just ugraded with the new version of Rasbian and enabled the OpenGL driver. I realise this is experimental but as soon as it is enabled I can no longer use Omxplayer to watch videos (or with the Kweb frontend). If I turn the new driver off Omxplayer works again.

Am I doing something wrong or should I be watching videos with a different method now?

Many thanks

The driver isn't really intended for everyday use. It does prevent things like this from working.

I would not recommend watching video with that driver on.

Okay thanks for the info, I'll turn it off again.
