Play a little bit with this settings:
nvidia-settings -a :1.0/AllowFlipping=1 
nvidia-settings -a :1.0/XVideoTextureSyncToVBlank=1 
nvidia-settings -a :1.0/XVideoBlitterSyncToVBlank=0
nvidia-settings -a :1.0/XVideoSyncToDisplay=256 
nvidia-settings -a :1.0/SyncToVBlank=1 
nvidia-settings -a :1.0/XVideoTextureSyncToVBlank=1 
The last two are most promising. Don't forget to use the
apropriate Display instead of :1.0
