MadVR reports the refresh rate and the number of dropped frames (both types combined) precisely. Dropped frames by internal glitches are very rare if you configure the player/codec properly. Dropped/repeated frames by a mismatch between the frame rate and the refresh rate do occur periodically and the period can be calculated easily:
Period = 1 / | frame rate* - refresh rate |,
frame rate* = frame rate with audio clock/system clock deviation accounted.
AMD: 23.976 +/- 0.001; the period >= 17min
NVIDIA: 23.971 +/- 0.001, 23.976 +/- 0.001 with custom resolution; the period = 3min-4min, >= 17min with custom resolution
Intel: 23.972 +/- 0.001; the period = 3min-6min.Edited by renethx - 3/2/13 at 8:53pm
