Re: Tearing and Composite
I see this: you sent me two files with description:
This output is WITH the variable set and NO tearing:
-> In this file, the environment has both VDPAU_NVIDIA_SYNC_DISPLAY_DEVICE and __VDPAU_NVIDIA_SYNC_DISPLAY_DEVICE set (i.e. both with/without underscore).
This out is WITHOUT the variable set and HAS tearing:
-> In this file, the environment has NEITHER variable set.
So, this would correspond to commenting out *both* the first two lines of your .profile file. I was hoping for tests with just the second line (with __) commented out or not, and there should be no difference there. The only difference should be if you comment out the first line or not.
If you didn't actually comment out both lines, something is screwing up your environment, and preventing those variables from reaching the MPlayer process, which would explain why it didn't work...
