v18 -  Choppy video playback
#1
OS:  Linux (LibreELEC 9.0.1 x86_64)
Linux Kernel Version:  4.19.23
Kodi Version:  18.1
File format:  1080p/MPEG-2 , .ts file

I have noticed that ever since upgrading to Kodi v18, certain video playback has been choppy.  The latest example is the following file:

/storage/dvr/Arrow (2012)/Season 07/Arrow (2012) - S07E15 - Training Day.ts

The video is not choppy during the entire playback of the file, but certain portions.  It appears to happen mostly while there is camera motion.

I am having the same issue with all my movies on my external hard drive. They all are choppy after I updated to the new version of Kodi. I even reinstalled it and changed all the settings back and still the same thing.

I had the same problem.  Somehow my Samsung TV graphics setting on my pc was changed to 29 fps?  I changed it back to 60 and solved the problem.

Thanks for the tip, but unfortunately it looks like my issue is caused by something else. I checked the refresh rate under Settings -> System -> Display, and it was already set at 60.00.

I am seeing similar issues on MPEG2 interlaced file since since moving to 18.  The workaround I have in place right now is that I have the player adjust frame rate to source set to on/off and am using the VAAPI-Bob deinterlace setting.  I didn't have this problem with 17.  It is, as you say, when there is fast camera motion you see the stuttering without this workaround..
