Bug Description

Not sure what causes this but:

Play any video using mplayer, vlc ( even others, kaffeine too but kaffeine isn't loading lately see here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/kaffeine/+bug/131935 )

and the video appears to be "shaky"... it won't stay still, litterally as if there is an earthquake on the screen. When you go full screen it appears to be in software mode? (video looks bad)

I'm using ATI X1600 mobile, fglrx driver, haven't had any problems in Feisty.

Some output:

updates, if I use mplayer -vo gl, or mplayer -vo gl2, or even the X11 output, I don't get this effect. seems to be narrowed down to Xv somehow (thats what causes the video to go all crazy)

Does anyone have an suggestions? Maybe there is something wrong mixing fglrx, latest xorg, latest Xv in gusty.

Can you run the command "xine-check"? I have all kinds of problems with Xvideo these days, too...

I may have this bug too, running Kubuntu Gutsy Tribe5 with all updates since 08 september 02:22. When playing a video in Kaffeine, the video is heavily corrupted. I checked to see which video driver is used and only Xv works. When I select OpenGL, kaffeine crashes. Then I installed mplayer, selected OpenGl and the video works fine. Mplayer with Xv has the same problem though. My graphics card is a Nvidia 7300GT with Nvidia 100.14.11 binairy driver (version 100.14.11+2.6.22.3-11.2).

I have the same issues with Gutsy.
Whenever I play avi files in vlc, the picture comes out as shaky, Jerky and the quality isn't good.
I am on a Lenovo T60 thinkpad and have an ATI card, and using the restricted drivers for ATI.

I confirm this bug on a Fujitsu Lifebook with Radeon X1400/fglrx.

I confirm this bug on Toshiba Satelite L30-134 with Radeon X200M/fglrx. Moreover, with 'radeon' xorg driver and overlay turned on I see only color stripes when playing video.
