Ubuntu 10.04 Flash Videos have tearing/lines Solution

This is what I call a ridiculous bug in compiz that causes it.

The solution/To fix it just install "compizconfig-settings-manager"

Open it up and Navigate to General Options -> Display Settings

Set the "Refresh Rate" to the current refresh rate of your monitor.

For ATI cards with slow window dragging/response supposedly disabling "Sync to VBlank" fixes that but otherwise leave it as is.

You may need to restart X to make the settings apply (I can't remember) but I'm glad to have solved this annoying Compiz bug.
