After an upgrade to Ubuntu Jaunty on my MSI wind, all video applications crashed with BadAlloc (If run from command line).

"The simple solution for me was to revert the intel driver and restart X with nohup sudo /etc/init.d/gdm restart

From this wiki post:

Add to /etc/apt/sources.list:

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/siretart/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/siretart/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main

Then the following Commands:

$ sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com 0xce90d8983e731f79
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-intel-2.4
$ nohup sudo /etc/init.d/gdm restart

This fixed vlc video, and my skype webcam on my MSI wind."
