    He didn't have to get all complicated with it.
    He has, in very many posts. It would just take a while to find them. There have been numerous questions on this in the past on their forum.

    Re: Mint vs Ubuntu video tearing

    I'm also trying to solve the tearing issue. I tried Mandriva 2009 on my machine and it doesn't suffer from tearing. So, I guess is not my hardware, but Ubuntu itself.

    EDIT: I finally solved the problem on my machine by enabling "Unredirect Fullscreen Windows" under CCSM General options

    The fix above wasn't very stable. Sometimes it worked, sometimes not.

    Now it seems to be solved by setting the Device in gstreamer-settings to "NV05 Video Blitter"

    Re: Mint vs Ubuntu video tearing

    The problem exists with or without compiz. It is a driver issue.
    I have found a solution that works temporarily.
    You have to use VLC, and set it to use xVideo, and in the settings xVideo has an option of -1, set it to 1 and it works without tearing.

    But the problem still remains everywhere else. I'm hoping a solution comes fast!

    Re: Mint vs Ubuntu video tearing

    There is no video tearing at all if you have your compiz config manager fixed properly...well in my case, it runs fine.

    HERE IS THE DEAL

    in compizconfig settings manager, you must use these settings.

    Texture Filter "best" if you have it fast, video tears.
    detect refresh rate "OFF"
    Lighting "on"
    Refresh rate "200"
    sync to vblank "on"
    detect outputs "on"

    remove all outputs.

    overlapping output "smart mode"

    anyway, keep your texture filter at best since this greatly affects the video refresh and tearing.

    I'll give this a shot.
    Thanks.

    I guess this varies from machine to machine, because here doesn't work. The only reliable "fix" I have found so far is to disable compiz.

    Re: Mint vs Ubuntu video tearing

    your other problem could be refresh rate is not correctly set for monitor.

    Nope. I did exactly as you suggested, unless your talking about refresh rate in other place rather than CCSM.
