Simple guide to solve this annoying problem :) Create file: /etc/profile.d/Tearing.sh Insert this code: export __GL_YIELD="USLEEP" Then make it executable with: chmod +x /etc/profile.d/Tearing.sh Once that's done, reboot. The GL_YIELD worked for me, and now vertical sync appears to be working as it should. ...
You can try to install the restricted extras. This gives you the ability to play any non free media formats, dvd, mp3, ... sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras
The source of problem was (of cause) faulty nvidia drivers. The solution is simple. Add environmental variables export __GL_YIELD="USLEEP" export __GL_THREADED_OPTIMIZATIONS=1 somewhere before X starts. System-wide /etc/profile/ works fine.
