Default Video playback problem- crazy colored screen during playback

Hello,

I am having an issue playing back any video files, incl. avi and DVDs.

I am using VLC player, but the problem persists with any player. I believe it is this video card driver, since I tried using the standard "nv" driver, and video played fine.

I am running Ubuntu 6.10 Edgy, P4 2.26, 512 MB Ram, MSI Geforce FX 5600

attached is a screenshot of the problem and a nvidia-bug-report. Thanks for any suggestions!

Does this problem persist if you're not using the Composite extension in X?

Thanks for the reply,

I am not sure, how can I disable that to give it a go?

i ran "nvidia-xconfig --no-composite" and it seems to work fine now,

Thanks! Should I have the composite extension disabled, is there any performance related issues?
