Win HOW TO - Kodi 2D - 3D - UHD (4k) HDR Guide Internal & External Players
I've been running Kodi on my 1080p projector at 1080p60 for the past 11 years.. the projector did a great job of reverse pulldown etc, so the 60 Hz refresh rate was just fine (I know it's a senseless double conversion). So I've gotten pretty used to Kodi playback starting and stopping immediately -- it's really annoying how long those 2-3 seconds feel when you're used to instantaneous results.

The delay is not so bad when you watch a 2 hour movie, but sometimes I just start lots of little video clips, or quickly jump into a favorite scene, so starting and stopping playback every minute or two makes those switching delays a big nuisance.

Now with 4k everything is more complicated, of course, not even taking HDR into consideration yet -- 1080p was so hasslefree the last couple years, but in the beginning it was just as much trouble Wink

One thing I will try tonite is setting Kodi UI to 23.976 fps (if I can?) -- just did a quick check an > 90% of my content is 23.976 fps anyway. So that would minimize switching, just have to try if the UI feels too sluggy with the low refresh rate.

Edit: scratch that idea -- Kodi UI in 24 fps is pretty much unusable...
