After the update to Kodi 19 I notice that subtitles get rendered across two frames occasionally. By this I mean that I sometimes see the bottom half of a subtitle line (e.g. 30 pixels or so) and then next frame the rest of the subtitle becomes visible.
It’s a bit like the tearing you get when vsync is disabled, except the video itself shows no artifacts, it’s just the subs.
This happens with srt subtitles and with embedded subtitles alike. This worked fine in the previous version of Kodi.
