I while ago I said my HD was no better than SD. After the inital 'crap' response there was opinion that broadcasters round the world are slowly downgrading the quality. IIRC Stuart sent me a link to jellyfish samples recorded at various rates, encoding and at 1080 and 4k.
These were good, smooth and sharp.

I wonder if broadcast is affecting perception here too.
The link of a system that you find 'smooth' has intel HD 600 graphics.
I have a NUC with intel HD 655 graphics that I find 'acceptable' but not 'stellar'

I see most broadcast stuff is at 25 FPS. My samsung tv fiddles 'till that looks smoooth, but myth on a (50Hz) monitor looks 'jerky'.

Does anyone have a snippet of smooth fast action I may evalute.
The jellyfish are lovely, but any jerkyness is hidden in their languid serinity.
