    Hey people,

    I had the flickering issue, but to bypass it in vlc i changed the video output to X11. (extended settings)

    As a result though, Xorg Processor usage goes up to around 25% and increasing the window size adjusts this value proportionaly.

    As for runnning anything else games etc, flickering is still there.

    just in case anyone wants to see if there is anything different, heres my xorg.conf

    Code:

    I'm having the same issues. I've been trying to run the aticonfig commands but none of the options seem to be working. If anyone has a fix for these issues especially the flickering a post would be greatly appreciated!

    I solved this problem in many media players by following the instructions at http://wiki.compiz-fusion.org/VideoPlayback

    I assume the players that it doesn't list there will have similar options. I couldn't find any options of this type for Miro though. I thought it just uses Xine, but apparently not.

    For me the problem with the black screen when I run a video or virtualbox still persists. The strange is that I get the feeling, when I launch a video or a virtual OS in virtualbox, is that my x-server dies and then it reappears and my video runs.

    Regards

    Well, updated the driver to the new 7.11 Catalyst driver and still the issue with the black screen before video playback persists. Does anyone else have that problem?

    Regards

    I went back to windows vista. Going to be buying a nvidia laptop next month. Will just keep my ati system for gaming in windows. I think nvidia is the way to go for linux, unfortantly.
