[Bug 781476] [NEW] Unity+OpenGL+Compiz+Composite= GL flicker !


You have been subscribed to a public bug:

In Ubuntu Natty, Unity needs Compiz and OpenGL, and OpenGL needs
composite on, which leads to serious GL flicker when using mplayer
watching videos in fullscreen mode through GL output. Switching to xv
output the mplayer works just fine, no flickers.

I'm not sure this bug is due to unity, or compiz, or the GL driver. But
I am quite sure in the previous version of these projects, with no
composite on of compiz, the GL output works fine for mplayer. And I
don't think developers have considered the possible consequence of
forcing composite on in Compiz.

Please don't tell me the workaround such as giving up trying gl output
and turning to xv output. GL output of mplayer is far better than xv
output with more speedy video rendering and prettier osd & subtitles.
