    Artifact Compression? Display is blocky


    Hi,

    I've been trying to search for my problem but I'm not sure how to phrase it so I'm struggling for results. I'll describe it as my display looking blocky or smokey? As if my monitor is trying to display a smooth range of colour but only has a limited range of shades to express it so it's trying it's best. I can include a screenshot but I wouldn't know if that was going to show my graphics output or my monitor display.

    Conceptually it looks like this! 2414: Solar System Compression Artifacts - explain xkcd


    It's happening on both monitors, the new one just bought today. I would appreciate any help.

    Winver 1809 and latest Windows Updates
    Nivida 1060 and latest drivers 461.72
    Samsung SyncMaster 245B (Old, DVI, 1920x1200)
    Iiyama G2530HSU (New, DP, 1920x1080)

    :)

  3. Asha 501 Poor Video Rendering Quality / Blocky Video Artifacts

    Hi folks, this is my first post here. I recently bought my Nokia Asha 501and I am pleased with the phone overall. But I am very disappointed with one major aspect of the phone - its video rendering quality, and iam referring specifically to the videos accesed
    via the phones native video app, stored in the memory card and not online youtube streaming quality.



    All videos seem to display a lot of blocky artifacts which are a lot more apparent when viewing a night scence and especially in dim light or at night in a dark room which spoils the overall viewing experience for me.



    I understand that most hq MP4 files need conversion to the phones resolution and I have tried various free converters like any video converter, laewo converter, video to nokia phones converter, freemake converter, format factory etc. with the following settings




    res - 320 x 240

    container-mp4, 3gp

    codec - MPEG4, XVID, DIVX, H264 ( H264 / x264 seem to produce slightly better quality but create lag/audio video sync issues during action scenes and still contain blocky artifacts so are not an option for uninterrupted viewing)

    fps- 24 / 23.9 / Source

    video bitrate - 300-600 kbps (500-600 seems allright but any higher still produces blocky artifacts)

    audio settings same as source or aac and 96-128 kbps / 44000 Mhz



    I have searched the forum for posts on this topic and what was usually suggested was to use the MPEG 4 codec instead of h264 which solves the problem of any lag but with all these settings the BLOCKY ARTIFACT problem still remains.



    I would be grateful if any of the others with the ASHA 501 or other Asha phones could share if they are facing similar issues with videos and if this is a hardware or software problem/limitation and

    if it would be better to buy a costlier phone like a lumia for good video rendering quality without blocky artifacts.

    Thanks

    Artifact Compression? Display is blocky

    x1950xt cf display blocky

    Recently installed the X1950XT CF as a single card (basically a X1950XTX), and noticed the display on my Syncmaster seems to have much less smoothing to the background, even with all the filters turned on or off. My X800GTO seemed to produce a cleaner looking display.*Frown Artifact Compression? Display is blocky :(

    The X1950 definitely gives a more realistic nature display (water, grass, trees, etc), however, even the WinXP opening page is blocky (the upper left portion of the window has a white ring that progressively fades to the blue of the rest of the screen, the x1950 shows the rings of varying shades instead of smoothing them). *Wtf :wtf:

    I reinstalled the latest CCC, and ATITool, but no change.

    Can anyone suggest a reason or a fix?
