Re: Tearing with 8600GTS, 256.35, xine-lib-1.2 when avoiding XLockDisplay()
rnissl, Can you please describe the tearing a little? In particular, does it simply look like typical tearing one gets when blitting an image to the screen without syncing to vblank, or something else, e.g. more persistent decoding corruption? Are you using the blit or overlay-based presentation queue; see the README for details on what X configurations allow/cause one to be used over the other (e.g. disable the X composite extension). Or, just move a window around, and see if you see flashes of the chroma key color as you move the window; if so, then you're already using the overlay.
Can you supply complete details on how to reproduce this (e.g. patches to remove the xine-ui problems you mentioned, which svn/... version to apply them against, do I simply comment out every single XLockDisplay call that I see in the xine-lib source or ... etc.) Thanks.
