Re: MythTV VDPAU tearing on Recorded and Live TV on startup of playing
Oh, that sounds like something different then. At a guess, I'd personally describe this as "corruption".
"tearing" usually means perfectly decoded pictures, but there's a single line all the way across the image, above which you see the new picutre, and below which you see the old picutre, simply because switching to a new picutre isn't synchronized to your TV's VSYNC signal.
Can you upload the file you're having problems with to the file drop mentioned in the VDPAU sticky. If it's too big, try truncating it to a shorter file, provided the issue still repros clearly.
