Hey, i have had this problem for years now. I thought by now the developers would have done something to address this issue. Well the problem is the tearing when watching videos. I have installed the latest ati drivers for my HD3200 card which is more than capable of running HD content in windows smoothly. I have tried to recreate the xorg.conf file. disabled compiz. adjusted my refresh rate in compiz and have followed the instructions of countless tutorials with no luck. This is making my transition from windows to linux quite painful. I have also changed the video outputs in vlc, tried all settings there. This problem is occuring across all players and sometimes simply when moving a folder over the monitor quickly. I have used metacity instead and it doesn't help. What can i do?!? Please help this is driving me insane!
