Video-out on an Empathy Call Goes to Static After ~5 mins

Asked by christopherbalz

Ubuntu 12.04 up-to-date, on supported hardware (nVidea; open-source driver). Start video call (on gtalk, for example). Video out on my machine is fine for about three to five minutes. Then it goes to completely garbled/static. Video in (video from the other machine) stays working fine.

Same thing happens actually under Skype on Ubuntu. So the issue is likely not specific to Empathy.

However, it clearly has something to do with an underlying problem on the system.

I've been told that vl4 might be a good place to look to debug this, but I don't know what steps to take to do so.
