    I have a standard Gigabyte 780g MB w/o sideport. Running Ubuntu Karmic 9.10. VA-API Mplayer worked great with h.264 encoded movies.

    I compiled mplayer-vaapi and I can watch movies. CPU use is at about 6% which is nice, but Im still getting tearing. What do I not have set up right?

    Go into the control panel (amdcccle) opengl/3d options and make sure you have "sync to vblank" enabled.

    btw if I enable sync-to-vblank, ut2004 is unplayable with severe mouse lag/overshooting

    Basically the app could force vsync on too. Don't know why this is not done.

    Default vsync issue

    Go into the control panel (amdcccle) opengl/3d options and make sure you have "sync to vblank" enabled.
    When I enable "Wait for vertical refresh" in amdcccle, I get very jerky playback of some h.264 files. These same files play well using XvBA, with little tearing, without this setting. I don't have a "sync to vblank" option in my amdcccle.

    Could the frame rate be a problem? A seperate 1080p 24fps plays fine.

    Yeah, "sync to vblank" and "wait for vertical refresh" are the same.

    What is your display refresh rate set to ? Maybe it's just a bit slower than the video frame rate - that might result in jerky playback.

    While the video is playing, according to the monitor it is 60Hz. If I can change it (I don't know if the monitor can go much higher), I will try again and report the results.

    I'm just guessing based on your comment that some 720p 60Hz were jerky with sync-to-vblank enabled while 24Hz videos were not. If tweaking the refresh rate doesn't help (I'm thinking your display might be at 59 rather than 60 Hz) think about things like memory shortages, swapping etc...

    Sorry if I was not clear, but you are correct. I have tested at 1280x1024 @75 and the effect is still there but much less pronounced. Looking at a news crawl it is almost like a vibration. Without vsync the crawl is very smooth with only occasional tearing.
