I've experienced a couple of issues with the auto-frame rate. One is with YouTube. Probably because everything on the site is mastered by someone different, it is constantly flashing the screen with every start of play. I've also had a couple of HDCP errors, but they vanish within a second or so. Was streaming something off of my DLNA server, and the framerate switched as expected. The screen flash at the beginning doesn't really bother me, as it only happens once when playback begins. However, this particular video began what I call stuttering. Basically, motion just wasn't fluid. When I turned auto-framerate off, playback was perfectly smooth.
This particular video was an OTA recording in Windows Media Center, converted to a MKV with H.264 video by MCEBuddy, then the commercials were edited out with VideoReDo and saved in a MP4 container (no change in video or audio codecs). I don't have the original file any longer to see if perhaps something happened during all the conversions. I do have many other videos that are DVD and Blu Ray rips, and I'll try one of them tonight to see if the same thing occurs.
