tightvncviewer tearing
I use tightvncviewer to watch video generated by one computer, on another one. Everything is fine, but one very annoying problem: tearing. How can i make tightvncviewer only update the window when all the frame is retrieved? Maybe i should use some other VNC client?.. I also tried gtkvncviewer, but it is TOO slow, though it doesn't tear.

I think that video through vnc is an unsolvable problem due to that video that is viewed directly is decoded on that machine, but when it is viewed through vnc it has to be transmitted as bitmaps (or at least uncompressed). Or something like that. (I kind of understand why it doesn't work, i can't just explain it in a good way.) If i'm wrong, i stand corrected:)

Why uncompressed?.. it is compressed using jpeg compression in Tight encoding. That's why i think this should be possible, at least on fast enough network (100Mbit, 1Gbit).
