Here you go, place the following text into a file
Identifier "Intel Graphics"
Option "AccelMethod" "sna"
Option "TearFree" "true"
And to make sure mplayer plays videos without tearing, I use this
configure file (/etc/mplayer/mplayer.conf):
With this configuration I have no problems with compositing and
everything works perfectly fine, even playback of 720p video (mp4 and
webm), but Flash is still slow, the plugin sucks.
