Do you mean at least 2.15, or are there problems with later versions
like 2.17?

Another issue is compositing. This is the future of window management
and some people like (OK, tolerate) GNOME 3 and even Unity, so saying,
"Don't use compositing" isn't good enough long term IMO. On my Ion
2-based nettop I can watch video in GNOME 3 OK, but I'm not sure vsync
works with it OK on my NVidia 8200-based HTPC. I don't mind using xfce4
on that for now, because I don't use it for much else. But I've got two
other machines with Intel graphics on which I'd rather use GNOME 3 than
xfce4 and still be able to watch video without tearing, and I haven't
managed that so far :-(.
