What is the output of xvinfo on Ubuntu 8.04 and Ubuntu 8.10? Tearing
video is usually caused by the textured video XV port. I read somewhere
that Ubuntu disabled the textured video XV port because of problems
If you see textured video _and_ video overlay in xvinfo, you might try
xvinfo | grep -E "Adaptor|base"
Then play a video like this:
mplayer -vo xv:port=<port base of the video overlay adaptor> video.mpg
This should play without tearing. If you use the port base of the
textured video adaptor, the tearing should be back.
In my system, it looks like this:
$ xvinfo | grep -E "Adaptor|base"
Adaptor #0: "Intel(R) Video Overlay"
port base: 92
Adaptor #1: "Intel(R) Textured Video"
port base: 93
So I would use:
mplayer -vo xv:port=92 video.mpg
