The "tearing" I am referring to is a horizontal line where it seems that the top of the picture is "torn" from the bottom for a brief period of time. This happens at any time but moreso with panning shots or movement/action. I've adjusted video and audio settings and it hasn't made any difference. I've even tried a different video driver (several, actually) and it makes no difference.
Just out of curiosity, I downloaded VLC player and all of my MKV files played perfectly without any tearing....it was rock solid.
I further experimented and actually uninstalled Frodo and installed Eden instead. Same tearing issue.
Does anyone know what's going on? Is this issue "fixable"?
Thanks in advance!
I have a similar HTPC like yours and had video problems only with 1080p movies at first when I upgraded to frodo coming from eden. My problem was stuttering video playback but I delete it and reinstalled it again and it worked fine. I don't know if they updated a bug or what but it worked for me but I see you already did that. ( also my playback was good with Media player classic) it could be you could have too many audio/video drivers or just a simple setting in video xbmc settings.
You could also use VLC as your player with XBMC, I'm just not sure exactly how to do it, maybe someone else does know how.
