Bluray (PowerDVD 15) playback is getting more often choppy

I am using PowerDVD 15 for Bluray playback. It seems that newer movies more often exhibit some choppy pans.
I have looked at CPU, GPU usage and made sure I have latest software as much as possible.
I ma pretty certain it started during the last 6 months on new Netflix releases.

I have a LG WH16NS40 drive from 2016.

I realize this could be caused by many factors. Just wondering if anybody ever came across a similar issue and found a solution.

A standalone Blu Ray player is fairly inexpensive and trumps by a wide margin trying to use a HTPC as a Blu Ray player.

I used to playback Blu-Ray iso's using PowerDVD but ran into the same issue with stuttering and freezing. I tried converting the Blu-Ray disc to mkv files and never had a problem with it. I have since converted my entire library to mkv files using MakeMKV. You can play them back in Kodi, MPC-HC, MPC-BE, VLC Media Player, and JRiver Media Center and probably other apps as well. I have several HTPCs in the house connected to individual HDTVs and having the mkv files on a server makes it very easy to play them on any TV. I don't have to deal with physical discs or worry about damaging them. I rip them and then put them away for safekeeping.

I use mostly Netflix rental discs. Trying to avoid ripping.
Would re-clock help?

I also noticed that PowerDVD sets the nvidia output to 23 frames. Is this expected (vs 24?)

Get yourself a standalone player for your Netflix rentals. It's easier and more cost effective and will save you a lot of headaches.
