VLC 3.0 works with HFR

Hello,

Just wanted to confirm the brand new VLC 3.0 does indeed work with HFR video files (120fps tested so far).

Cheers,

120fps works for me, although it still don't work with G-Sync fullscreen :x ill probably test with 240fps for fun tomorrow

Try different back-ends. OpenGL should work with G-Sync. However, whether it's useful or not depends on whether you can disable the triple-buffer-like behavior that many video players use (draw the same frame repeatedly.) In mpv this is called "display sync". VLC could be using something similar.

(This is used to minimize frame skips due to missing a vblank.)

Video players definitely do need to be VRR compatible to allow it to play any framerates.

Indeed, there's no such thing as a "missed vblank" when running with variable refresh rate -- the display simply waits for your software's frame instead.

I tested new "Direct3D11" using VLC 3.0 final but... I got not always 50fps (= stutters randomly) at 50Hz. FAIL! :S I got no any stutters at Direct3D using VLC v1.1.9 and v2.2.6.

Hmmm!
You (we) should report this bug.
