I thought I read that the streams would be 1080p and 50fps, this doesn't look to be the case on my PS4 - framerate looks worse than using my Gen 2 Chromecast. Is there some setting I need to enable to achieve 50fps?
It is interesting to hear you have 50fps on the PS4, I definitely don't. It is a WiFi connection but same room as router, measure approx 50mb WiFi download speed to my phone so no problem there. As mentioned even my gen 2 Chromecast has a smoother frame rate, and I don't think this supports 50fps.
Do you know what settings you have for PS4 video output? Mine seems to be forcing 60hz to TV, I've tried playing with settings but doesn't seem to help.
Looks like someone has same issue with Xbox https://community.bt.com/t5/BT-Sport-on-TV-Online-player-or/Picture-quality-on-Xbox-oneS-vs-chromeca...
Thanks for your responses !
It's a ps4 Pro. I will be very surprised if it's the WiFi but I'll connect with Ethernet to rule it out.
Yep TV shows ps4 60hz but I think the Chromecast looked smoother when I forced it to 50hz in the Chromecast settings, don't understand why...
@pippolivesSSo I tried flicking between the BT sport app on my PS4 pro this evening and my Gen 3 Chromecast. Even though I can tell the PS4 app is reaching 50fps, because the frame rate is mismatched so badly with the 60hz refresh rate of the PS4, it really does make it look choppy.
I'd probably go as far as saying that I think watching at 1080p 25fps with a Gen 1 or 2 Chromecast (set to 50hz) would be much more pleasing to the eye!
This is why I don't watch DVDs or iPlayer through the PS4 because as far as I can tell, as said in a previous post, the PS4 seems to be locked to 60hz output except for 24p Blu-ray's.
Hi, I haven't been home yet so haven't had chance to check the ethernet but sounds like you have found the same as me when you have compared - so app is indeed showing 50fps stream but we aren't able to see it properly due to 60hz PS4 - thanks for checking
I wonder if BT are able to force 50hz PS4 output on the app or if it's a PS4 limitation ?
