Description of problem:
When attempting to play any mpg file with totem, the video is not displayed. I'm running full stock F7, with the RADEON X.org driver included with F7, and Desktop effects enabled. I have a T43 laptop, model 2668-nu3
I'm able to play the same video files with mplayer no problem. Oddly enough, I've also found (after reading bug #213976) that moving the totem window will occasionally show the movie that is playing. I don't think it is a dup, because moving the window will only allow a playing movie to show until the end. If it stops and I press the play button then it will not show again.
sound works fine in all cases, and disabling desktop effects makes everthing okay again.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. enable desktop effects
2. play any mpg movie with totem
mabe a frame or two of video shows, but the player shows mostly black.
video should play, both audio and video.
I realy like where compiz has gotten to, I find it very nice to use and the visual effects are great. Little stuff like the post-suspend corruption and this issue are all that seems to be left.
