I started to have issues playing HDR videos after installing the latest update today.
When I trigger the playback of 24p HDR video from a network drive, my vero4K+ stays stuck on the blue loading wheel and the playback never starts. Before the update I had no problem playing the same file with the September release.
Playback of SDR content looks to be working fine.
I also noticed that in the player settings, the option “Adjust display refresh rate” had no selected value. I tried to set the options to “Off” and to “Always” but it didn’t change anything.
I usually use the option to “Adjust display refresh rate” on Start / Stop. But the “On start / stop” option is no longer available in the the Settings menu where the only options available are “Off” and “Always”.
I can still set it manually by editing the guisettings.xml: <setting id="videoplayer.adjustrefreshrate">2</setting>
I hope that you’ll add the option back in the future releases.
I use a video projector and each resolution switch take up to 12s. So each time I bring the UI during playback I have no image for 12s. And when I get back to watch the video, no image for 12s again. With “On start / Stop” the transitions are seamless. The UI animations are not smooth during playback but I find it to be the best user experience.
Excuse my butting into someone else’s thread but is reinstating the “on start/stop” option for this setting going to be the policy from this point onwards? I ask because setting this to an appropriate value is something that gets mentioned several times in my Whitelist HowTo, and I want to make sure the article is up-to-date…
