Screen tearing when watching videos

Wed Dec 13, 2017 10:34 am

Hey all!

I currently have a RX 580.

I don't really play games so I'm not sure if there's screen tearing in regards to that, but I was watching Netflix earlier and there was some intense screen tearing. Any ideas on how to fix this?

And what kind of monitor do you have? If you have 60Hz.
1)You need to enable vertical sync.This will lock your fps at 60.And eversing going smooth.But you will get massive input lag at your mouse.
2)When you unlock your fps,and fps going more then monitor fresh rate,you will get screen tearing.
3)How to fix?You cant.Only need buy 144hz monitors.Will solved all problems.

I do have a 60hz monitor.

1. Is this what windows does? How much input lag are we talking? How do I enable this?
2. Makes sense
3. I didn't have this issue on Windows
