Screen flickering in dark scenes - yarospo - 2020-02-15

Hi,

In dark scenes it seems like Kodi is trying to adjust lighting automatically and brightens the scene up, but then regrets it and darkens it again, then brightens it again and so on. This results in a sort of flickering of brightness levels. It really annoying. Now before you tell me it's my TV's dynamic brightness, it's not. I picked a specific scene in which this phenomenon is extremely bad and replayed it several times with Kodi, and then several times with VLC. In Kodi it's a discotheque, while in VLC there is 0 flickering.
Do you know what could be causing it, and, more importantly, how do I get rid of it?

You're right in that I would have said check your 'TV's dynamic brightness', but it appears you have. Next suggestion would be the gfx engine and it's settings (there is nothing within Kodi that plays disco with colours/brightness) so I suspect the graphic card. Set Kodi up using limited colours and colour management profiles and see if there's any relief, failing that switch over to software rendering. What kind of gfx hardware do you have, a debug log might be useful.

P.S. very remote possibility of a cabling problem.
