Anyone feel free to correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe that you
can have mplayer running without tearing if composite is enabled, you
just cannot be using xv for output.  I don't seem to be having a
problem with my composite enabled and running mplayer.  Of course I am
using the nvidia drivers to render mplayer's output as opposed to xv.
