OS X OSX Leia Nightlies seem to have broken 'Adjust Display refresh rate' function.
#91
Righto,

So I added the overrides into a newly created advancedsettings.xml file in ~/Library/Application\ Support\Kodi\userdata and that worked.

So is this something macOS users with 24Hz capable panels will need to do forever now?

Yep until macos supports fractional frame rates - which they do on tvOS btw.

How does that make sense given that 17.6 managed to do it?

I can only guess that 18 uses a different API/framework now?

Having that special case for Mac OS inside the algorithm for selecting frame rates was not accepted by the video player maintainer.
That algorithm was redone in Kodi 18 and he former behavior was considered wrong in multiple ways from the video player developer.

To re-open this thread, i used to have the same problem like reported before with Kodi 18.1 not automatically switching TV frame rate to 24Hz with 23.976fps movie files. This was resolved with the advancedsettings.xml file from this tread. But then i was having the same stuttering choppy video like others reported as well. I'm using a Mac Mini 2012 model with hardware acceleration enabled. I reverted back to Kodi 17.6 which does the switching correct and plays smooth in 24Hz. My only problem is that Kodi 17.6 sometimes crashes on stoping playback, usually after a couple of movies.
I decided for this reason to once more try v18.3 this time and to my surprise it plays smooth now in 24Hz, just needs the xml settings to correctly switch to 24Hz. Only problem now is that it crashes Kodi consistently on stopping playback. It shows a black screen for a few seconds and then i get logged out of the OS and shows the login screen of OSX. If this could be fixed then 24Hz playback is fully functional again on my Mac Mini. I've included the log file after the crash, hoping this could be helpful.

Several users reported the same issue. Seems not much Dev support for OSX on here right now. Went back to Plex and will try again someday with Kodi v20 or something.
