Why H264 videos flickers in Chromium/Blink based browsers?
This is really annoying and I can't find a definitive solution.
Anyone noticed when watching Youtube the the image flickers? It seems to happen only when you are getting video encoded in h264/AVC. When you are receiving video in VP8 or VP9, it don't, the video have no problems.
I tried flags, codecs, drivers, etc.
Seems like an old problem, to this day unsolved.
What's the cause?
@Panino must be something on your pc, everything looks fine and steady here, I'm watching YT all day and I have h264 forced.
Try disabling hardware acceleration. If that doesn't work, I would guess it's a problem with your graphics card. Do they play without flickering in Firefox or other, non-Chromium-based, browsers?
The flicker results from vsync problems of some graphics card drivers or GPU.
