Comment 10 for bug 201596

I can confirm it partly. Overlay for video output isn't used anymore in current Hardy with my i915 chipset since compiz widgets like sound increase show parts of the video under transparency and the compiz effect shift + alt + cursor up show the video in the reduced window.
Video output seems to be slower but it seems to work in full screen at least for standard videos after a short test. It lags very much if Totem shows the progress bar or the right mouse button is pressed.
The other point is that I am afraid that Bug #129025 appears again. I currently couldn't test it with this external monitor.
