Video is tearing here also in VLC or smplayer. I did not do any great research why this happens (and you are right the compton does not help in this case) but I have found a solution for me. MPV player works great without any taering or screen artifacts. Not ideal solution if you like your favourite player but working.

i don't have any issues in vlc. is this possibly hardware dependent? is there maybe a setting or .conf file i could share that would help show why mine doesn't tear?

Possibly, your $(HOME)/.config/vlc/vlcrc file for comparison, would be nice.

For my part it is not hardware dependent (as in the hardware is capable: Intel i5-6300U CPU @ 2.40GHz with HD Graphics 520).
Under BL4.x Setting VLC's video output module setting to OpenGl would solve all tearing issues. Under BL5 this seems to have no effect at all; nor do any of the other video out settings (same result 3 different computers, similar Intel HW). Ubuntu & Mint (live) do not show tearing.

Compton has helped a lot now that it is working. I now have less tearing and what tearing there is has shifted position to the top 1/5 of the screen whereas before it was pretty much in the centre of the screen.

out of curiosity i scanned through my vlcrc and only saw two lines (out of almost 4800) that weren't commented out. i went ahead and threw it in a google doc so i wouldn't spam the thread with that much info:

Thx for your effort
I swapped them out (vlcrc) just for testing: no difference.

No matter, the tearing is less and bearable with Compton running as is atm.

Here are my compton configs, maybe one will help. I found these online somewhere. But I have tweaked some apps in them.

Compton-glx.conf

backend = "glx";
paint-on-overlay = true;
glx-no-stencil = true;
glx-no-rebind-pixmap = true;
vsync = "opengl-swc";

# These are important. The first one enables the opengl backend. The last one is the vsync method. Depending on the driver you might need to use a different method.
# The other options are smaller performance tweaks that work well in most cases.
# You can find the rest of the options here: https://github.com/chjj/compton/wiki/perf-guide, and here: https://github.com/chjj/compton/wiki/vsync-guide


# Shadow
shadow = true; # Enabled client-side shadows on windows.
no-dock-shadow = true; # Avoid drawing shadows on dock/panel windows.
no-dnd-shadow = true; # Don't draw shadows on DND windows.
clear-shadow = false; # Zero the part of the shadow's mask behind the window (experimental).
shadow-radius = 7; # The blur radius for shadows. (default 12)
shadow-offset-x = -7; # The left offset for shadows. (default -15)
shadow-offset-y = -7; # The top offset for shadows. (default -15)
shadow-exclude = [
"! name~=''",
"n:e:Notification",

# The shadow exclude options are helpful if you have shadows enabled. Due to the way compton draws its shadows, certain applications will have visual glitches

# This list includes all the affected apps I found in my testing. The "! name~=''" part excludes shadows on any "Unknown" windows, this prevents a visual glitch with the XFWM alt tab switcher.
