    - BUMP-

    I have been thinking, cause multiple players have issues, it might be due to:
    - HardWare ->onboard GPU is conflicting with add GPU card
    - OS -> Ubuntu Hardy is not correct installed
    - ATI drivers ->....

    any sugestions.....

    If you do not use Compiz, try the OpenGL video output mode for VLC.

    Re: Video playback issues

    Im having the closest related problems to this you. I made sure all my players played video using X11 rendering. the reason why i want it to be x11 is because when i use compiz and use the cube effects or others it will draw the video perfectly. the downside is now all my videos i play look blurry. not horribly blurry. but not as clear as im used to. any ideas?
    Why make programs that work when we can troubleshoot? 8)
