PolliSoft Wrote:Ok, here is the latest (18163) smoothvideo revision merged together with the 18197 Linuxport revision.Desktop res 1280x720 @ 60Hz
GUI res 1920x1080 @ 60Hz
Auto Refresh Rate - On
Sync Video To Display - On
23.98fps video - pressing 'z' shows 1920x1080@24Hz - pressing 'o' shows 25-26fps
25fps video - pressing 'z' shows 1920x1080@50Hz - pressing 'o' shows 29-30fps

Something is wrong there, when you press o fps should be about the same as the refreshrate.

That what I thought.
Could it the build is maybe missing something?
Even if I try overriding I get the same results.
- bobo1on1 - 2009-03-02 19:33
Maybe your system just can't render that fast, try with some low quality video (dvd for example).
With override on it should play really slow if the value used for refreshrate is higher than the actual refreshrate.

Ah, we're getting somewhere.
I turned off 'High Quality Upscaling' to lessen the load on my HTPC and both 23.98fps and 25fps videos were showing 60fps. Again I tried the override but no change.
After much testing (and a lot of WTH moments) I've finally figured out what it's doing on my system.
It only uses the start up refresh rate of XBMC as the fps of any video - even changing the GUI refresh rate during testing will have no effect unless XBMC is then shutdown and restarted.

That means the build is too old.
- Hitcher - 2009-03-02 20:19
Even though PolliSoft's using your last change (18163)?

You should really do your own build to be sure what is really in there and which change you are testing. You'll avoid these problems of not knowing exactly which build and changes are in the version you are testing.

Well, either he didn't, or it got lost in the merge.
The fps you see in the codec information is the exact same value used by dvdplayer.

You'll avoid these problems of not knowing exactly which build and changes are in the version you are testing.I did start making my own builds a while ago but the guys in the 3rd party build thread churn them out so quickly these days I stopped bothering. Mind you I think applying patches would be beyond me.
