Re: Does GSYNC work with video players?

So does that mean that when you use GSYNC with a video that has a frame rate below 30fps, you will see that graininess, like the one on the moving square in the testufo inversion link Chief posted, on the whole screen? Also, why does GSYNC have a minimum frame rate in the first place before it start...

Re: Does GSYNC work with video players?

Yes, I have heard that GSYNC can be problematic in the 25-30fps range, but few people actually explained how so, except to say that it didn't look very good. I assume there would be other drawbacks of being an early adopter as well, at least temporarily, like relatively basic functionality, lack of ...

Re: Does GSYNC work with video players?

Whoever wrote this must have been on crack cocaine :lol: Or maybe just a lawyer who didn't really know what the utility was, so he just wrote down anything and everything he could think of ever going wrong with a PC or monitor in order to cover all his bases. Who knows. Either way I think I'll give...

Re: Does GSYNC work with video players?

Thanks for the post, nimbulan. So you see, RealNC, the question isn't how seriously you should take me, but how seriously we should take that disclaimer.

Unfortunately, I wasn't. They really went all out with that disclaimer.

Re: Does GSYNC work with video players?

So if I'm understanding this correctly, this "judder" or " 3:2 pulldown" effect (if these two terms actually refer to the same thing), is caused by the conflict between a 24fps frame rate and a 60Hz refresh rate. As in, the v-sync coded into the video file or player forces one frame to be displayed ...

Re: Does GSYNC work with video players?

No, actually I haven't been strobing this monitor recently, however now that you mention it I do think most of the content I watch is actually 23.976fps, so I guess that explains it. Also, I am not on Linux, but how is it that you can create a 47.952Hz mode? I thought refresh rates were limited to w...

Re: Does GSYNC work with video players?

Hey Chief, thanks for the quick reply. Are you saying that a 24fps mkv or mp4 file in VLC media player is not running at "true 24 frames per second"? I've actually never heard "24p" before, so I'm not even sure if that means anything other than "24fps". I just assumed that if GSYNC was compatible wi...

Does GSYNC work with video players? [edit: yes, sometimes]

Hi guys, Long time lurker (off and on), first time poster here. First off I'd just like to say thanks for all the great info this site has provided. In fact, it is one of the main reasons I bought a VG248QE last summer, and I've been very pleased with the purchase. The colors may not be the best, bu...
