First of all hit play, sit back, relax and be flabbergasted:
And now: How do you get something like that?
After I had all set up and had played around a while I wanted to see movie playback in live previews while doing the cube, switching workspaces and such. But I had the playback go black on me while the sound was playing fine. Also, I noticed if I sized the window or moved it around it showed glimpses of the video, i.e. part of a frame. Researging the net I found a blog post via ubuntuguide.org.
