'Adjust refresh rate' now working for Windows - Hitcher - 2008-12-03 00:06
Just grabbed the latest build (16438) from here and noticed that the 'Adjust refresh rate' option is actually working for Windows now.
My plasma supports 24/25/30/50/60Hz and when I play a 24fps video it now runs at 1920x1080@24Hz while a 25fps video now plays at 1920x1080@50Hz.
This should hopefully be great news for all those people having problems - I never noticed any when running at 1920x1080@60Hz on my HTPC (Radeon HD 2400) and Panasonic plasma but did on my other PC (NVIDIA GeForce 6600) and monitor (which I've yet to test).
I also noticed that you can set the Hz in the screen resolution now (ie 1920x1080@24Hz, 1920x1080@25Hz, 1920x1080@50Hz, 1920x1080@60Hz).
Thanks for the great work guys.

Already post this on other thread, but here it goes... "Adjust refresh rate" makes all my .srt broken (atleast the ones i tested 15/20 movies). As soon as i turn this option off everything works fine, some .mkv subtitles also doesn't show.
I know that this builds aren't supported by team XBMC, this only for info perpeses.

Haha, I did look at that but didn't have a clue as to what it meant.

Does this solve the jittery playback of 24fps videos?
- HexusOdy - 2008-12-03 14:44
Not that I can see. It solves a problem for those people that have TV's that do multiple clock speeds. So for example Ashlar can now set his TV to 24hz so 24fps videos are flawless.
But for those with TV's that have fixed refresh at 50hz or 60hz I believe the problem is still there because thats an issue with Open GL for Windows I think.
I tried this build last night on my 60hz TV and still had Jitter.

But ok, so the "XBMC jitter-status" with this build is now:
- XBMC can set screen refresh at the hardware level to 24Hz correctly now so that compatible TVs can display them jitter free (but at the expense of sluggish gui?)
- Non 24Hz compatible TVs are still jittery because of non-optimal ffmpeg pulldown performance?

It only switches to 24Hz when playing a 24fps video so the GUI will still run at 50/60Hz.
