I think it's disgraceful that even now it's STILL impossible on any driver with any configuration to get proper synced video while compositing is turned on. It's doing my head in having to switch back to metacity every time I want to watch a video
No need to disable Compiz... here's Nautilus script:
gksudo xhost +; sudo xinit -e `/usr/bin/mplayer -vc ffh264vdpau -vo vdpau -softvol -ass -vf-clr -fs -fontconfig -overlapsub -subfont-autoscale 1 -embeddedfonts -ffactor 10 "$1"` -- :1 -config "/etc/X11/xorg.conf-vdpau" -depth 24 -ac -nolisten tcp -a 2 &
DISPLAY=:1 /usr/bin/nvidia-settings --config=/home/user/.nvidia-settings-rc-vdpau --ctrl-display=:1 --load-config-only
make "/etc/X11/xorg.conf-vdpau" by "cp" your actual "xorg.conf" and add at the end:
Option "Composite" "Disable"
cp $HOME/.nvidia-settings-rc $HOME/.nvidia-settings-rc-vdpau
and change string "0/" to "1/" in every line inside ".nvidia-settings-rc-vdpau".
Of course you must have "VBlank" set for XVideo and OpenGL.
