Additional Comments

Tried both WINEARCH=win32/win64 but it makes no difference. Some sort of regression. Bug report opened.

HowTo / Notes

Upgrading Wine

Upgrading Wine deletes necessary registry entries. This can be avoided by running wineboot after the upgrade, and before running SlingPlayer.

You can also disable this by running

echo disabled > ~/.wine/.update-timestamp

Ubuntu PPA causes crash

Bug #1260901 describes a bug in the Ubuntu PPA's version of Wine which causes the SlingPlayer to crash in user32. It is apparently caused by patches added by the PPA team.

Do not report this as a Wine bug.

HOWTO

Tested in Ubuntu 16.04 under Wine 3.0-rc3:

  1. Install winetricks.
  2. Run WINEARCH=win32 winetricks -q quartz
  3. Install SlingPlayer as normal.
  4. Run echo disabled > ~/.wine/.update-timestamp
  5. Run SlingPlayer.

You should now have a working SlingPlayer!

Assertion failure on old Nvidia cards

If you experience an assertion failure while the SlingPlayer is loading, issue the following command and try again:

winetricks orm=backbuffer
