Tearing free Video playback on Sandy Bridge, pleeeeeease!
For a long time I hoped to get tearing free video playback using XV on my old box using i945 graphics when compositing is enabled. At some point, this finally happened.
Then I upgraded to a Sandy Bridge box and have tearing video again, currently using Debian Sid, Gnome 3.2 and recent kernels. I tried XV and VAAPI playback in different players (mplayer, vlc, MythTV) and all were affected. This really makes me sad.
Any hints what I'm doing wrong or, if it's not my fault, when tearing free playback will be possible on Sandy Bridge?
High quality deinterlacing in VAAPI
NVidia provides really nice deinterlacing in VDPAU. Intel VAAPI on Sandy Bridge is very limited regarding this. Will there be better deinterlacing in VAAPI for Sandy Bridge?
