I run the proprietary, closed source nvidia driver in F12. What happens

At first glance things work just fine for me on my laptop. The laptop has
a Quadro FX1500M chip.
However, when using GL apps things get a bit strange. mplayer -vo gl (or
-vo gl2) just wont work for me.
vlc runs and plays things but sometimes I have green lines popping up in the
movie here and there.

Still... It's a HUGE improvement from previous versions.

I still have to test my ID titles (Wolf, Quake, Doom) and then C&C Tiberium
wars and RA3 under wine ;) If it passes those tests, I'm sticking with the
Open Source drivers
