I would suggest testing to see whether disabling Compiz (using some 
other Window Manager--a non-Compositing WM, like Fluxbox or RatPoison or 
...) and disabling the Composite extension in X prevents the problem 
from occurring.  Both of these tend to cause issues.

Also, you may want to change your Playback Profile group to a VDPAU one, 
if it's not already.  You can start with VDPAU Slim, which should work 
fine, and can test the other 2 if you like, to see how they work with 
your card/video.
