    VLC & Compiz


    I have the following problem:
    Since I installed Compiz Fusion on my desktop, I can't seem to get VLC or any other media player to play video files correctly. I remember back when I used 10.3 with Compiz Emerald, I never had this problem.

    Thanks in advance

    My System reqs are:
    Intel Dual Core T2500 @ 2.00GHz
    1 GB RAM
    ATI X1600 Mobility
    OpenSuse 11.0
    GNOME
