After the .158 update screen flickering issue is there when viewing video in any of the OTT platforms or YouTube.
Please mods help us on this.
@CH_ASUS @Admin @Admin @GusHarmon
Can you share a video
@ARP_ASUS @Gustav_ASUS @Charles Rollon @Admin @Adm
Please find attached video for reference.
This issue has been reported by many users earlier. Is devs ignoring the issue as we don't see any devs or mods comments that team is working on fix.
I am also facing this issue.
This phone is giving painful experiences.
I am sure they are working their way through of other issues.
To help, can you mention which film and time to that scene, which version of YouTube app. The refresh rate you are using too.
By the way, does this happen in web browsers too?
@ronald1985 Yes this happens with Web Browser also. This is not YouTube. It is Netflix app. But it happens with YouTube also.
I am not sure how film name or time stamp will help them.
@ARP_ASUS @Admin When we can enjoy the multimedia content on phone also?
I stopped watching videos on Phone because of Colour Banding (Black Crush Issue).
With regards to which film and when it happens, I guess you mean this happens on every video and it happens every time regardless.
@ronald1985 It happens on every video , every time. There is no specific video issue. Whatever I watch its so waste that I stopped watching videos or movies in phone regardless of "Big Amoled Screen".
Did you turn off the HW overlay thing in the developer options?
@Danishblunt I didn't turned on Developer options.
One question why we need to play around with developer options?
I disabled the HW overlays but no difference.
For testing purpose, thats why those settings exist, to test things out. Also when you turn that option on, remember to restart chrome by removing it from the RAM.
Try set the refresh rate at any Hz (not auto)
In addition to everyone's suggestion, do you have the Asus backlight on? If you have that on, turn it off. It looks like something behind the screen is a light blinking.
I've got the same issue, I've isolated the problem by testing further, seeing other threads and the issue can be manifested as:
When watching videos in a browser (any), the screen starts flickering, also when using Netflix
It doesn't happen with other apps such as: Insta, Youtube, FB.
It appears like that the browser and Netflix use a library/plugin/media browser service? or similar that makes this issue to happen.
As per the suggestion of turning off the HW overlay thing in the developer options, nope it doesn't work
Yes, it's a bug. Yes I did factory reset after upgrading to .158
I will take a look at it today sometime as I don't have this bug on my kernel, so I can compare the regular kernel with my changes to the display in order to isolate the issue, this might accelerate the fix for this bug faster I think. This feedback was rather helpful.
@Megalox Thanks for detailed explanation.
@Danish it is a bug you have confirmed in other thread. Your custom kernel fixed the issue automatically.
Looks similar to this:
Turn off "Android SurfaceControl".
Go to chrome://flags and disable it.
