    I don't believe you can blacklist specific apps.
    You can blacklist some refresh rates.

    Modern HD movies play at different fps...23/24, 59/60 ... 30 fps and above content seen as made for T.V..
    Peter Jackson's:The Hobbit was filmed @ 48fps.

    Automatic switching forces your China Box to continue playing smoothly(viewing content as the director intended).

    Hello.
    is it possible to make afrd stay at 60 frames per second?
    Would it be possible to blacklist an application in afrd?

    Thank you

    tested the afrd on two different boxes based on amlogic s905x3 , android 9 alice ux one in 4K , one in Hd ,
    seem to switch correctly the refresh rate , and killed the judder problem

    Nice ! :-)

    Edit ;Amaizing piece of work
    switch correctly between 50/60/24:... tested with many videos ( lots of resolution codecs ...)
    Relly nice !

    It does work on Android 9, the most recent custom Amlogic Pie ROMs found here on FreakTab all include AFRd because it works; if your device does NOT have Root then it will not work.

    Here source code link from Github website

    Source code, not APK file.
    https://github.com/anpaza/afrd/archive/0.3.2.zip

    APK file,
    https://www115.zippyshare.com/v/uKWfuOho/file.html


    Amlogic drivers were broken(?) for Android 6 and 7, not sure status of Android 9.
    This was made for past generation, including our obsolete s912 chip set.

    Playback is not smooth or refresh rate switching is not smooth?
    ( I might be totally wrong...Your China Box is hardware/HDMI handshaking to your T.V., AFRd acts as an in-between software(best guess) scenario for media.)

    Write down your current settings and try testing the values in increments.
    Try in settings: "Prefer exact refresh rates" . See if that makes a difference?
    Try other settings?

    Post your findings
    Nothing with "Prefer exact refresh rates". Nothing changes.

    I have default settings, but my 50fps stream is not smooth with afrd like when i switch in android settings 1080p50hz and then reboot.
    I will try some settings

    I have some problems with some apps like smart tv, when afrd switch to 50hz the screen is not smoth, but when i select from android settings 1080p50hz then picture is smooth on 50fps content. Anyone knows is there fix for that?

    As far as I know, it requires root access, but not a dev.

    Am I correct to say that AFRd and the apk requires root to work ? Is there away to have AFRd functionality without rooting the system ?

    The AFRd settings are not too complicated, the settings are labeled with exactly what they do for the most part, and 1080P or a 4K TV will react the same because the app only changes the TV refresh-rate and doesn't matter what the picture pixel density(1080p or 4k) is. The determination of what settings to choose is relative to how old your TV is if it can handle all the frequencies display options, if not then choosing settings like the "Prefer exact refresh rates" might benefit your viewing experience. For the most part the app can be used with the default settings, whenever changing settings in an app that you might not fully understand what it is doing, always go slow and change one setting at a time then test it out for few days, so if you have to change it back it is easy to remember what you changed in the first place.
