    Talking HOW TO : NVIDIA 'tear free' playback plus visual effects ON!

    I am running Meerkat 64 bit

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Go to;

    System -> Preferences -> CompizConfig Settings Manager -> General Options -> Display Settings

    Texture Filter - Fast
    Lighting - Checked
    Detect Refresh Rate - Unchecked
    Refresh Rate - SEE BELOW
    Detect Outputs - UnChecked
    Overlapping Output Handling - Smart
    Outputs - SEE BELOW
    Sync to VBlank - Checked

    Your Refresh Rate and Outputs HAS TO be the same freq as your monitor.

    E.g, I am 60hz and 1280x800 thus;

    Refresh Rate - 60
    Outputs - 1280x800+0+0

    The best thing about this, it ONLY works if you have;

    System -> Preferences -> Appereances -> Visual Effects

    Select ANY setting except none.

    This overwrites whatever you have set in NVIDIA X Server Settings.

    I use this on my laptop with an NVidia 8400GS card and on a Revo 3700 (with NVIDIA ION) through SMPlayer and XBMC.

    You can have choppy free and 'tear free' playback AND visual effects on!
