Default Re: Composited XVideo flicker

I have the same problem than the one described in the first post. I didn't manage to do a proper screenshot. I'll try to do some gimp.

When playing a video with xv on fullscreen (I tried the xfce compositing), I have half top of the frame at time "t" and half bottom of the frame at time "t-1". The separation between the two halves isn't a straight horizontal line, but something that looks like a wide reversed "Z" (I assume it is because, with composition, the screen is divided in triangles). With every vsync settings on, this "line" is very stable on the exact middle of the screen.

It is very noticeable when the video showing flashes or horizontal scrolling.

By the way, my screen is a LCD.
