    It seems to occur when refresh rate is higher than 60hz in which i am at 144hz... I tried testing other refresh rate and they have same behaviour when watching on netflix it kinda sharpen color then revert back to standard hence i said it flickers

  • The same thing happens when I use YouTube and also watch videos in PiP mode..

    You can easily test it by enabling "Show refresh rate" in developer settings.

    I'm searching for a solution as well

    I think, there's an issue with HDR from latest update.

    This flickering also happens when using youtube through broswer. Apparently the refreshrate jumps back and forth. Maybe something the devs can look into.

    Tried showing refresh rate on my screen but seems recording using rog3 screen recorder drops it to 60 fps and wont have that flicker effect. Instead using my old phone to records the issue you can see the refresh rate is always changing. You can see at video that everytime it changes refresh rate from 144 which has like a wave white light to 120.... I feel having epileptic attack from watching videos in netflix hope they could address this issue as fast as they can.!!
