i have an HP6515b laptop with ATI Radeon X1250 graphics card.My problem is that if I enable my desktop effects(note: i hve not installed compiz fusion), and then if I play any video or even switch my webcam on, the video keeps flickering. The moment I disable the effects, The videos start working perfectly. I have installed the graphics driver as directed by leigh on his post.

compiz/compiz-fusion uses up A LOT of resources on the GPU so turn it off while watching a video on a laptop ( laptops are already resource limited )
