I've tried a lot of things, at first I used SVP but I gave up on that really quickly, huge frame drops. I tried various madVR configurations I found on the internet, from really high-end ones, to the absolute bare bones. With some settings, I can play certain videos (even with SVP) in windowed mode without experiencing frame drops, but when I go fullscreen, the frame drops come flooding in. What do I do?

1. run "restore default settings.bat"
2. start video in fullscreen
3. press ctrl+j to activate OSD
4. press ctrl+r to reset counter and let it run an bit

Windowed fullscreen is not default setting, I believe?
How do I check that?
In general settings you can also test "use Direct3D 11...." and/or "use a separate device for presentation" and/or "windowed overlay" (for overlay try without fullscreen exclusive mode).
Are you using MPC-HC? Then go Play>Filters and copy&paste the list here. Other than that see if the GPU clocks are stable (GPU-Z) or if you have DPC latency problems using the DPC Latency Checker.

Enable automatic fullscreen exclusive mode is enabled by default. Fiddled around with the settings you mentioned, but I still get framedrops.
Yeah, I use MPC-HC, here are my filters (from top to bottom): ReClock Audio Renderer, madVR, Audio Switcher, LAV Video Decoder (internal), LAV Audio Decoder (internal), LAV Splitter Source (internal).
The DPC Latency Checker tells me that "This machine should be able to handle real-time streaming of audio and/or video data without drop-outs.". My current latency seems to average between 501-562 Ás. Absolute maximum is 621 Ás.
Results from GPU-Z are as follows:
I guess I'll just switch to Ubuntu and use mpv, then.
You know mpv runs on Windows as well?
Yes, but the Linux version has certain things the Windows version doesn't have. And I want to get rid of Windows anyway.
