Re: Nvidia Ion, Ubuntu Karmic and Composite
I understand that I need to disable composite to get tear-free video. The point is that I don't want to, because I like the benefits of composite (compiz, pretty effects, clever docks, etc). So my question is: who needs to improve to enable tear-free video in linux with composite. Is it X, or Nvidia, or Compiz?
AaronP has indicated that Nvidia could implement functionality in their linux driver to enable tear-free VDPAU video playback with composite enabled in X, provided no composite manager was running. This would be a great step forward, meaning that a simple script to disable compiz could be run before watching a video rather than having to restart X.
So what can I do to help?
