Making the move to Kodi has not been pleasant for me either, i have spent literally all day today trying to work this out.

I experience fps drop of 1-2fps every now and then. Its not constant, but it seems to happens on pans and basically just happens randomly every 10sec to maybe 30sec.

Now, i have been on Frodo 12.3 for quite a while without any issues at all, but i want to make the move to 14.2 due to add-on support.

What happens is that watching 23.976/24p bluray rips/remux i get this stutter now and then, the fps drops down to 22-23 and then goes up again. I also seem to have some artifacts/blocking in the picture which i did not have on 12.3

I use the same Audio/Video settings as i did on 12.3, newest drivers and i have tried literally every settings without any luck, both in Windows and Kodi

My hardware is: AMD A10-5800k, 8GB 1866, Windows 7 64Bit running through an Yamaha RX-A2010 receiver.

Here is a log file

I think i found the problem!

Deinterlace video has to be set to "Auto" and Deinterlace method to "Auto select", although i used "On" and "De-Interlace" on Frodo, Helix did behave differently on my system.

The choppyness seem to have disappeared, but i'm gonna keep trying out some more video's just to be sure.

Simkin84 I have been struggling with the same issues for 2 weeks now! My hardware setup is different so the problem is not related to a specific hardware vendor.
I have tested tones of different settings and tweeks without any improvement. My system is setup with the solution you provided and the issues unfortunetely persist.

Good to know I am not alone though Smile

Do you have 'Use a full screen window rather than true fullscreen' checked? System\System\Video Output.

Hi steelman1991

The option 'Use a full screen window rather than true fullscreen' is not checked in my settings. If I try to run HD video with this setting enabled then I get even more stutter and horisontal tearing.
