Intel G35 and Fullscreen Video Tearing

Hey folks! I have an Asus P5E-VM HDMI motherboard with onboard Intel G35 chipset.

I am using the Intel driver for X.

Everytime I play fullscreen video I get moderate tearing. Tearing, in case people don't know what I'm talking about, is when the video refreshes at different time at different locations spread out on the vertical plane--if that makes any sense! tongue

I've tried editing Xorg.conf, tried the GIT Intel drivers, tried Driconf. Nothing seems to fix it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Found this thru our very good friend Google:

Kinda long, but there seems to be a fix suggested in this post:

Looks like the intel drivers don't play well with textured video and you have to switch to the overlay port in mplayer.

Thank you very much! I'm not at home but I've implemented the suggestions on that forum remotely from SSH. I'll restart X when I'm at home tomorrow and update on the situation. Thanks again!

If the above tip didn't help, have you tried another mediaplayer? I had the same problem with mplayer and tried a lot with the different drivers, but switching to xine solved the problem instantly.


Endut! Hoch Hech!
