The only valid reason to do this is power savings.


A stuttering video is a video with an unstable framerate or a framerate that is not a multiple of the refresh rate (so the duplicate frames, if any, are not in a consistent pattern).

A choppy video is a video which doesn't have the temporal resolution required to make whatever appear to move smoothly.
I can't see where I mentioned video playback anywhere in there, but ok.

Point is, Android is designed with a target framerate of 60fps, and HTC is screwing with that by limiting the framerate artificially to 30. System responsiveness apparently suffers, even if its by a tiny amount.

Given the device's specs, nothing should need to be limited, honestly.

It's video, even if you're not playing a video from disk... I was explaining that it's not stuttering.
