Default Re: Still get vdpau tearing. No composite, 256.53 driver

Thanks for the reply.

I reread the openGL section of the readme. Before launching xbmc from the command line I did:

$ export __GL_SYNC_TO_VBLANK=1

There was no change in the tearing. My understanding was that when using VDPAU, none of the "sync to vblank" settings matter because the encoded video stream is sent directly to the GPU where it is both decoded and displayed. Therefore, if VDPAU is working correctly there should never be any tearing regardless of any of the normal "sync to vblank" settings.
