Thanks for the suggestion, vincentv.
I think that since the trend has shifted to Gnome 3 and Cinnamon, my proposal
may no longer be of any value.
Nevertheless, I have noticed that the 'tearing effect' during full screen videos still remains an issue, even in Gnome 3.
I don't know if it can be fixed somehow, but undoubtedly there are more pressing issues to be considered, so I'll just leave it up to the Gnome people (or the Mint developers, if they think it should be addressed).
Many thanks, blueXrider.
I accept your opinion but are you telling me that no other user has the same issue? An NVidia GT240 is considered insufficient for such a task? I don't know...As for the Compiz icon, I think everyone is familiar with that. I suggested an automatic switching from Compiz to No Effects when video playback starts.That's all. I proposed this as the Mint developers have shown that they improve things that other distros or Desktop developers aren't thinking about doing something about them.
Tha latter part of my answer applies to your comment too, dear colleague.
An extra setting -as the one you are suggesting here- seems a good idea and that's why you have my vote, though i think that it is a Gnome specific "problem", not Mint's.
Mint are not the developers of Gnome or compiz. Also the problem you describe is down to your hardware and/or video drivers being insufficient for the task and not a shortcoming in the software. You could always install fusion-icon which allows you to switch compiz-on/off easily from the sys tray.
