Tearing in every video player when composite enabled
 
Hi
As anyone knows there is a problem with tearing when composite is enabled. When I disable it in xorg.conf, video tearing is gone in 100%. The problem is that I want to have it enabled.

I tried almost every solution found on this forum, but still, the problem appears. Please can anybody help me with that ? Or maybe it is impossible to get rid of tearing when composite is enabled. And also, I'm not using compiz, just metacity with effects.

Here is my xorg.conf
Code:

The metacity compositor uses XRender and it's currently not possible to avoid tearing with it. You might have somewhat better results with Compiz, if it is correctly configured.

What a pity :(. I really like simple metacity with effects. Well, maybe in future releases of nvidia drivers it will be possible. Thanks anyway.

This is not a problem with NVidia's drivers, but with the way XRender works. You will see tearing with all drivers.
