[Bug 755841]


I'm now on Kubuntu 12.10 and I enabled in xorg.conf both the tearfree
option and the sna acceleration. It's definitely better: the xv output
seems fine so far in mplayer, the gl output is however unusable as the
video keep halting during the play (truthfully I don't really care about
it as long as the xv output works). Watching youtube gives me less
headache but it still isn't perfect: on some videos there's sometimes
still tearing. One thing that I also noticed: after watching a youtube
video in fullscreen the display gets somehow corrupted at the bottom of
the kde screen (the sidebar containing the desktop shortcuts, the clock,
the minimized windows). When I pass the mouse pointer on it everything
gets fine again (as it is refreshed) but not for long...

Should I expect some improvements in a more recent driver that the one
provided in Kubuntu 12.10?
