Tearing on videos while not in fullscreen, in kde
(Firefox :: General, defect)
(Reporter: someitalian123, Unassigned)
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:220.127.116.11) Gecko/20101013 Ubuntu/10.10 (maverick) Firefox/3.6.11 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:18.104.22.168) Gecko/20101013 Ubuntu/10.10 (maverick) Firefox/3.6.11 I'm not sure if this is a bug for firefox, kde, kubuntu, or adobe flash player but every time I go on an online video site like youtube I see a lot of tearing. And when I say a lot of tearing I mean tearing when their is barely any motion at all. I know that my video driver isn't the problem because when I switch to fullscreen any tearing that their might be is barely noticeable. Also I haven't noticed the problem while in gnome. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Watch an online video while in kde 2. 3. Actual Results: Tearing while watching videos regardless of the amount of motion Expected Results: smooth video playback

This sounds quite a bit like a vsync problem with compositing. Can you reproduce the problem if you run a different window manager, or turn off compositing in KDE (if you can still do that)? If not, then please report this as a bug against KDE.
