        Did not test much yet, but with every fglrx driver tested so far it is impossible to playback a video with 1280x536 res without a green bar below. No problem with ati oss driver. Card used: HD 3450.
        I'm not sure we're talking about the same thing, but aren't you seeing the green bar at the bottom of the video that's expected when the height isn't a mutiple of 16 (536:16=33,5 here).

        If so, it's normal, and also shows up with NVidia proprietary drivers, whatever the OS. Depending on the player there might be a hack to aleviate that, but encoding a video with a height that's not a multiple of 16 is a sign of bad encoding with most codecs (some codecs says a multiple of 8 is ok, but I wouldn't say they never showed that problem).

        Why it wouldn't show with the ati opensource drivers is unexpected (unless you use another player, or unless the difference in hw acceleration play a part), but that would be a reason to buy ATI or not, just dump badly encoded video, they don't deserve any better.

          You can be sure it is not shown with Nvidia here. My 8800 GTS 512 (G92) shows it correctly with xv and vdpau!

            I watched both videos on the article and I'm a bit confused. On my mobile X700, which sadly won't be supported anymore by Catalysts, dragging wobbly windows have always been displayed the way it is shown in the 9.3 video, for more than 2 years now. No rendering issues or whatever. So, maybe the article should be more specific.

            In fact, the 9.2 video looks a lot more like the issues I get when the open ati driver is used.

              Up to R500 there is a hardware support for xv, but R600+ it is pure software. So you can not really compare it.

                I don't think glxgears uses xv

                  Then, the article should be more specific, as I said. Because that detail isn't written anywhere in the article. Thus, how am I supposed to know about that detail?

                  Anyway, thanks for the information, I'm not confused anymore.

                    I just installed and tested this release and I have the same OpenGL behavior as the other releases. The YouTube video in the article shows that moving a window around containing OpenGL will do what it's supposed to, but mine doesn't. It gives the same behavior as before. Is anyone else having this happen?

                      The driver seemed promising but like the previous release, powerplay is broken for my x1600 mobility. Too bad. I'll have to use catalyst 9.1 for the rest of my life
                      Why did you break something so important? Could you release a "9-3.5" driver please
