View Full Version : [ubuntu] Screen divided to three parts, when playing a movie
December 27th, 2009, 09:21 PM
When I am playing a movie, it seems that some codec or something flickers the image. Sometimes I see, when they get somehow out of sync and I see the lines, where they are.
This happens with XBMC and also with MPlayer. What could cause this? I'll try to add screenshots later.
CPU: Intel C2D E6400
GPU: GeForce 9400 GT
2GT RAM, 800mhz
These shouldn't be the bottleneck, when playing 1080p mkv files?
I'm using Karmic 9.10 and latest NVIDIA drivers.

I have tried to take a screenshot from it, but when this error appears and I stop the image, the error is gone.
Could this be a problem with 24p movies TV's refresh rate missmatch? I have ubuntu set on 1080p/24hz resolution, but this doesn't seem to affect on XBMC nor MPlayer.

I GOT IT WORKING! This error is called "Video Tearing" and this is how I fixed it:
Edit /etc/rc.local file:
sudo nano /etc/rc.localAdd this before part: "exit 0":
chmod 666 /dev/nvidia* &Then edit xorg.conf
sudo nano /etc/X11/xorg.confAdd these lines there. DRI is for Direct Rendering:
EndSectionThen open NVIDIA settings: System -> Administration -> NVIDIA X Server Settings:
X Server XVideo Settings -> Check box for Sync to VBlank
OpenGL Settings -> Check box for Sync to VBlank
Then Quit NVIDIA Settings and reboot Linux. If you still see Tearing try this:
System -> Preferences -> Appearance
Open Tab: Visual Effects
And check: None
This fixed Video Tearing problems for me!
