Default Re: Image tearing/image artifacts during video playback

I've experienced tearing with mplayer if I had mythtv running in the background. Killing mythtv eliminated the tearing. If the tearing also happens when you're only running mythtv, I'd suggest trying not to use OpenGL for mythtv, though this is just a guess/hunch.
