As I said the whole purpose of the external player is to move out of xbmc into the players own environment, therefore if the player (in this case KM player) doesn't support it then I would think you are stuck with a stable refresh rate, obviously based on your display configuration.
Now I found a solution via bat file, mediainfo and display changer.

I use MPC, which has an automatic refresh adjustment built in. It only stutters some times. That can be canceled by just opening the options menu and closing it again.
Another option i would know is to use reclock.

Sure. I will check my way and if it's 100% wotking I will send a guide.
This solution can be working for kmplayer and also for MPC-HC.
Noob struggling with resolutions/refresh rates - parrydave - 2010-05-16 02:09
I've got XBMC on an Acer Revo R1360 running Windows 7 x46. Really struggling to get judder free playback for PAL DVD ISO's. I can't get playback at anything other than 24Hz. How should this work?
I'm using a plasma screen (Pioneer PDP-507) hooked up by HDMI. Nvidia control panel doesn't seem to show 50Hz options and won't let me add them as custom resolutions. Is this the route of my problems? Should XBMC be able to play back at different rates dependent on source, or is it locked to desktop settings?
I have latest SVN build and have selected options to match source rate and sync with display rates etc.

parrydave, you need to get Windows to recognize 50Hz. After that, XBMC will be able to switch to 50Hz when appropriate if you activate the 'adjust refresh rate' option.

Thanks for reply. These are the supported inputs for my screen (from screen manual)....
firstname.lastname@example.org Hz/60 Hz
email@example.com Hz/60 Hz
firstname.lastname@example.org Hz/60 Hz
720(1440)*email@example.com Hz/60 Hz
Assuming I can get the windows side of things working, will XBMC be able to switch say between 1080p/24 and 1080i/50 or is it intended to switch between 1080p 24/25 which clearly my display doesn't support.

The interlaced resolutions can be a problem. It's been a long time since I've tried though.

I have 720p50hz .mkv sport file, latest xbmc nightly does not change refresrate right, refreshrate is 60hz. Also that 60hz is my xbmc default rate. Why? My desktop rate is allways 50hz.
There is no problem with other file, only those 720p@50hz.
