This thread is about issues with random hiccups / stuttering playback of 24 fps video (bluray) not due to network problems.
(The other old thread is full of several different stuttering problems - therefore this new thread )
Please inform us about:
- Video type (attach MediaInfo specs or just include codec and fps info)
- Video output setting on Apple TV (50 or 60Hz)
- TV brand/ model (100Hz or 120Hz panel)
- Any motion features enabled?
- 'Film mode' setting on TV (3:2 pulldown on / off)
Hope that this tread can be a help for James and his team to solve the problem.
My input to this tread are:
Apple TV output set to 1080p/60Hz (or auto)
My TV is a Sony KDL46HX855 ( European model, 200Hz panel)
Motionflow = standard
Film mode = auto1
I experience the problem as that during playback of 24fps (BD-rips, 1:1 mkv files) movies there are often random hiccups which I suspect has something to do with Infuse doing something so that the playback gets out of sync (a framerate timing problem??) , or something else that makes the ‘Film Mode’ (3: 2 pulldown) fails so that the random hiccups / stuttering occurs.
Also during playback it often occurs that a sudden series of continuous hiccups appear. These hiccups seem to be remedied by briefly pausing the playback of the movie - sometimes it goes away again after about 30 seconds (more og less).
Otherwise the playback i smooth the most of the time !
I Have no hiccups watching the same mkv-files with Plex.
No hiccups watching movies on Netflix og Itunes.
If I turn ‘film mode’ off I see no random hiccups but then there is constantly judder.
With Plex there are also judder if I turn film mode off but yhe playback is totally smooth if it is set to ‘Auto 1’.
(Playback of DVD rips (framerate = 25fps (PAL)) where Apple TV output is set to 1080p/50Hz the are no judder (or hiccups) no matter if ‘Film mode’ is on or Off)
