    Are there any testing results yet? Good or bad ones ;)

    I'll be honest with you: after I learned what the VideoEffectChanges does, I have no need for it. I don't watch (and don't have) any SD content anymore :p

    Obviously "HD only" is also a solution :)

    Unfortunately I still have SD recordings to watch, so therefore it has a real use. (I don't watch private channels live at TV, too bloated with advertisements). So let's wait for other feedback about my added changes

    Hi,

    sorry - I received only one of the replies in email, so I thought this thread was dead :).

    installed 7z, found the path for MP plugin folder, moved the official version of the plugin to a safe place, put that enhanced version to the MP plugin folder, started MP, enabled VideoEffectChanger, watched TV: no flicker, restart HTPC, start MP, watch TV: yes flicker, stop MP, run log-collector.

    And oh behold, the logs.

    Thanks for feedback!
    I can see from the last log file, that you played a SD TV channel and the VideoEffectChanger selected the "sharpen_complex" shader:
    [2017-10-08 08:51:12,324] [84098 ] [10 ] [INFO ] - VideoEffectChanger: Selected effect 'effects\sharpen_complex', video height: 576px

    If you see flicker here, it could mean the the used shader does create a too high load on the graphics card, so that random black frames could appear.

    Could you please select the simpler "sharpen" filter? It is visually not as good as the "sharpen_complex", but requires less rendering power. I'd like to check if this makes a difference.

    Here, some gpu load results attached ...using gpu-z...not sure if this helps at all.

    I have a low-end gpu, but someone here had a high-end one and still had the flickering problem. I don't need any effects, and I think they should be off by default.
