The version of compton in ports is about 1 year old and the current version in github fixes a couple of problems I encountered with urxvt and screen tearing during video playback
Can you please update the port to the latest commit?

Redports fix: marino
It was a good thing I verified this port in Redports because it was broken! xinerama is now a dependency.
Moreover, the "from" github commit hash didn't match reality. I don't know what happened there, so I had to modify the patch so that it would apply.
But at least it's updated now.
