Would it be possible to add change refreshrate on PAUSE also.

Basically define a kind of "acceptable" Kodi GUI refresh rates (50Hz, 60Hz) with the first one being the "main" default one.
Keep current refresh rate if running one of those "acceptable" refresh rates (and not always forcing 60Hz!).
All the other refresh rates (24p) will be switched to this "main" default refresh rate on stopping a movie.

As described by before by bigbadrabbit in 2016(!):
Europe has 25/50Hz TV standard. So constantly switching between 24/50/60Hz, especially with an older AVR/TV is a daily struggle Sad

Why not set your main refreshrate to 50hz - then it would only switch to 24hz if you watch a movie. Also when setting it to switch only at „start/stop“ it really switches seldom.

I don‘t think I understood your proposal and how it would reduce the switches even more.

In Germany i really never need 60hz at all.

When I find some time I am going to implement a manual mode. Means the system does not automatically switch the refresh rate. This way you can browse videos without annoying changes of refesh rate. If you finally decide to switch refresh rate, a popup window will provide suitable refresh rates to select.

I have a question concerning interlaced refresh rate switch. Couple days ago there has been a commit which should play 1080i50 videos directly with 50fps. But if I test with latest nightly it still starts with 25fps and switches 1 second later to 50fps. Would it be possible to improve the change?

I can see the logic in a 'Adjust refresh rate on Start' option.

Lots of us in 50Hz-land who watch Live TV via Kodi and a PVR backend have Kodi set up for 50Hz refresh.  When we play a 23.976/24.000 movie we get a re-sync from 50 to 24 when we start playing, and another from 24 to 50 when we stop.  If we then find another 23.976/24.000Hz video to watch we get the re-sync from 50 to 24 again.  If we had 'Adjust refresh rate on start,' we'd only get re-ysncs when we played content that was different to the current refresh rate (set by the previous media).   In some use cases this could be a lot more useful.

The original suggestion gets a +1 from me.

Have you actually tried using the UI at 24Hz? It's horrible.

Yes. I run Estuary using a remote control to navigate a tree structure of media (I don't use a library) and have never found the 24Hz UI too horrific. Sure it's not as smooth as a 50Hz GUI - but that's a reasonable trade off compared to a lot of re-syncing of amp and TV and lots of OSD flashing and banging.

 Youtube.
30Hz/60Hz videos all over the place.

Please tell me your experience with variable frame rate videos and the "adjust display refresh rate" option on.
In my case, Kodi changes the display refresh rate back and forth when there is a transition of frame rate.
For example, with:
Minimum frame rate: 17.118 FPS
Maximum frame rate: 29.981 FPS,
"adjust display refresh rate" set to on makes it impossible to watch.
If I disable it it's OK.

What happens if you just have adjust refresh rate On Start/Stop enabled, rather than Always? 
What's the source of the variable frame-rate content ? I seldom see any variable stuff these days.
