Kodi video settings

Hi all, there is something wrong with my Kodi video settings on my Windows 10 computer that I have in my basement HT. when I watch a movie using kodi, the picture looks weird. it kind of looks over processed and the bright areas are way too bright. If I watch the same movie using media player classic, everything looks fine. What key video settings do you use in kodi?

There is an option to set the color space within KODI. Flip that and try a movie. If you have Avengers, that is always my go to for checking color space early in a movie.

I had that happen every time I upgraded to Kodi, found out it was an option in Settings / Player / Video and scrolling down to Processing. Allow hardware acceleration - DXVA2 was enabled. Make sure your settings is set to Expert. I disabled it and my video quality was perfect.

The Kodi Wiki is amazingly helpful and covers all the video settings, I recommend browsing that. I have not had your issue, so I don't know how to correct it. I am also using Kodi on a Windows 10 PC.

Are you trying to playback SDR or HDR?


I suspect HDR so, if you use KODI v.18 or lower, make sure W10 HDR is off and the Pixel shader setting is selected.
If using v.19, it doesn't matter if W10 HDR is on or off but if on it will certainly affect the desktop. Still, Pixel shader should be selected. This allows proper HDR to SDR conversion. Also, go into video settings during playback and select Reinhard tone mapping.

HOW TO - Kodi 2D - 3D - UHD (4k) HDR Guide Internal & External Players
W10 1903 / MPC-BE\HC / PotPlayer / PowerDVD 19 / DVDFab Player 3 / KODI 19 videoplayer
GTX960 4GB / RGB Full 4:4:4 / 8bit Desktop mode =60Hz / 10/12bit Video mode = Matched Refresh rates IE 23,24,25,60Hz
