That's not my experience. I've tested most of the possible combinations:
ATI+Radeon and closed-source NVidia. Only Intel has the tearing issue.
All the others play
video, including HD-Video, perfectly. BTW, my MediaPC has a cheap dual
core Intel Core 2 @1.8 GHz
and a $30 NVidia graphics card. It has no problems playing H.264 720p.
The above is using XV, I don't use
the OpenGL overlay as it had some issues.
