Strange colors/blue-fringed mouse pointer on full-screen YouTube when f.lux is active

@applewaffles Oh, gee. I do promise it's not our bug, I guess that's further evidence. Do you have reduce white point turned on for your iPhone by any chance? Turning it off may help.
Updating the OS and to the latest Safari should fix the artifact problems in everything in Safari. I don't believe it's fixed for non-Apple apps.
@kcds I have the exact same problem.
For the record, I still get blue artefacts in Safari using f.lux on the very latest Safari. Mac is the 2016 12", so the newer (problematic) GPU.
I don't know what the update was supposed to improve, but it hasn't worked in my case.
@chris-l 's extension is great for Chrome! So that's a plus. But I don't yet know how to make a Safari extension from what's on the GitHub. (GitHub noob. Hopefully I can work it out!)
I'm assuming this wasn't fixed since I'm having the same issue. I have a late-2016 MacBook Pro 13,1 running Intel Iris Graphics 540 and macOS 10.12.2. This is happening with any video I run in full screen on Chrome 54.0.2840.98. I don't use Safari so I can't speak to that.
@enrique I have the same problem with Safari on the new MacBook Pro 13" with Touchbar on the latest version of macOS. It isn't as noticeable as it was back on my old MacBook mid-2012 but if you look closely you can see still artifacts in the video which go away when moving the mouse.
It would be great to get a patch for VLC where it affects my enjoyment the most. I'll go on dreaming and turning flux off when it gets too distracting.
I'm having the exact same issues on my 2012 13" Macbook Pro running El Capitan 10.11.4
Latest version of Flux
I get Artifacting only when fullscreen (Youtube + VLC).
The artifacting effects:
- The Mouse Cursor
- Areas that have a smooth colour (Walls, Skin, Etc)
It disappears, and comes back 3 seconds later when:
- I move the mouse.
- I adjust volume (the volume icon that pops up).
- Pausing and Playing the Video again with the Spacebar.
Hi, I'm own the newest Mac book Pro 13 inch with Touchbar and I'm running 10.12.3 and the latest version of flux.
I seem to have the same problem of color distortions when streaming from sites like youtube or Netflix.
My problem also occurs when I'm not in full screen. It occurs both in Safari and Chrome!
This is what it looks like. So is it flux's fault or a problem with apple?
here the picture links since embedding didn't work:
Also I haven't noticed the problem when playing a video file with VLC or similar -- just from streaming.
