rsambuca The problem is film based material is 24 fps, and you are trying to convert it to 60 fps. Because of this, each odd frame is displayed longer than the previous frame. Frames are displayed 2 times, then 3 times, then 2, 3, etc... hence you will see judder in slow panning shots. The only real way to get rid of this is to get a 120Hz LCD TV, so that each frame is displayed 5 times, so no motion judder will be seen.

I can see that kind of thing too so you are not by yourself. And my wife never notices either.

testikoff Horizontal panning judder is normal for a movie material (24fps) on the monitor with 60Hz refresh rate though (2:3 pulldown needs to be applied)...

I am using Nvidia drivers 100.14.19. My system is a Gentoo system.

I also have 2 GB Ram.

My CPU usage is about 20 - 30 % when playing my mkv files.

Relevant part of my xorg.conf:

BTW, this is not video tearing, as I have Sync To VBlank set in my nvidia settings in my KDE autostart.

rpr Which version of the Nvidia drivers are you using, what Linux distribution, and what are the computer hardware specs?

play h.264 gives panning judder

I have my Linux box connected to my TV (720p set) via a component cable. I have an nvidia 7600 GT video card.

I have files encoded H.264 codec. I notice significant panning judder. I use mplayer and vlc to play the movies.

The video is 23.976 fps and nvidia has my TV at 60 HZ.

How can I reduce the judder? Any way?
