    Sadly I get the same thing: with tear free. The video is not as smooth with tear free enabled as with tear free disabled. Also using XINE and tear free, the audio & video slowly loose sync.

    This on an HD4890 and on an E350.

    simple - use open ati/amd drivers. free tear-free video playing is included in package ;)
    tested on Mobility Radeon X2300 with r300g and RV770 CE [Radeon HD 4710] with r600g. not too many fps with gears though yet but zero X crashes & leaks too.

    Which version of the driver are you using?

    I'm using the 11.3 catalyst driver. I can only play videos normally with xbmc. If I run xbmc, it overrides everything, so if I want to check my mails, I have to close xbmc...
