VLC jerky playback SOLVED

Postposted on Wed Apr 17, 2013 10:47 am

I've read a lot about the jerky playback of video with
horizonal camera panning in VLC.

I was testing some of the options in Catalyst control center
and noticed that VLC was no longer jerky!

Catalyst control center runs when I boot but that is not enough.
I just have to open it and minimize it to smooth out VLC playback.

I have no idea what is going on BUT it did finally fix a very annoying
problem with VLC....YEA!!

I was trying a number of other players but I no longer need to.

I don't think so. Believe I have vsynch off.
And it only does it when the camera in the movie
pans in a horizonal manner across the movie set.

Vertical camera panning movement has no problem.

Also "Media Player Classic" or my video editor does not have the problem
only VLC. But I like VLC a LOT. So I can now use it without getting
ticked off at it.

doesn't modern VLC try to offload some of the decoding on the graphcs card? My guess would be it's something that has gone wrong with that.

What he said. And those settings, if memory serves, are within VLC itself. Opening up the Catalyst Control Panel and doing nothing else... I can't imagine it magically enables hardware acceleration to work. The only think I could think of is that it re-enforced some vsync setting or maybe forced Windows into/out of Aero or something like that.

Nothing else immediately comes to mind from just passively opening the CCP.
