Whenever I use gstreamer to play a media file:

    gst-launch-1.0 playbin uri=file:///home/pi/test.mkv

it always immediately reboot to the white login screen.

Have anyone encountered this? I have enabled openGL driver and increased gpu_mem to 256.

  • What kind of power supply do you have?

It is about GL driver. Test it without GL enabled.
