Default Tear-free video with compositing using VDPAU possible?

I have a G210 and have always had to disable compositing to get tear-free playback with VDPAU on whatever distro I was running. Is it possible to use compositing and still get perfect playback?

With kwin it is tear free if you enable vsync in kwin and NOT in gl options in nvidia-settings.

Isn't this only applicable to dual screen/twinview?
