I have installed Ubuntu 10.04 on a PC Celeron dual core 2.5 GHz, and 2 GB of RAM. The integrated video is 82G33/G31, and I have problems with flickering screen when playing videos with Compiz enabled. Use the drivers from ppa glasen-intel-driver and had never experienced these problems. The only solution I find is to disable Compiz when I run a video. What is the problem? I tested the drivers of the x-swat ppa and xorg-edgers, but without results. Any help is welcome. Thanks!

EDIT: I do not know why, but the screen flick even if I disable Compiz. Any suggest?

EDIT 2: I found that flicker problems occur with versions of xserver-xorg-video-intel > The other versions I tried (2.2.14 and 2.2.15), generated these problems. Any ideas?
