Description of problem or question:
Can you suggest settings for further test runs? -- I'm at the end of my knowledge of what HandBrake does. Since the source is p24, & MPV is playing p24 (confirmed), & the laptop will display p24, I don't understand how the laptop would show any judder when playing the source DVD (except perhaps that the movie's source was actually p30-telecast and was 'detelecined' down to p24, thereby losing fields), but any further insight you can provide, even if pure speculation, will be welcome. Thanks.
Setup: gaming laptop (4K, xxHz) --- HDMI --> LED TV (2K, 60Hz), cloned display
Test runs (see Source note):
Code: Select all

Source note: The DVD movie 'blackhat'  (480p24), 6:10 to 6:30 (-->0:00 to 0:20), makes the best test source I've ever seen. Chapter index is @0:04, so it's easy in MPV to review it over & over. @0:04 begins slow panning shot, 30-degrees down & left across steel wall panel, across metallic speaker grills (moire) & books on bookshelf, to actor's profile.
