I have an issue with playing video with video output GL or GLX. I have an ATI HD 5850 with tear free desktop and the playback works great but the problem is when I move the mouse and the menu of the videoplayer shows(VLC,SMPLAYER...) it seems that for a moment the video freezes and then continues normally.

In summary,my problem is in full screen mode,when the bottom menu shows off,the video does something strange.Other than that it works great.

And if I don't use GL the performance it's not the same...
