@Adrián-Mihálko Not for me (MacBook Pro Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2015 with Intel Iris Pro 1536 MB).
There seem to be several threads about this so I'll chime in on this one as well. Same problem.
MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, Early 2015)
Graphics: Intel Iris Graphics 6100 1536 MB
OS X El Capitan 10.11.3 (15D21)
I've just installed the most recent f.lux update (36.6).
8 months and still not fixed...
Hi! I've made a topic about this problem in Apple Forums. Please comment there and let them know that they need to pay attention to us!
And report it through product feedback http://www.apple.com/feedback/
We need to get their attention, wa lot of people need to talk about this problem.
did i miss an update? running 36.6 and it is still happening.

Same problem, started when I upgraded to El Capitan a couple weeks ago.
Macbook Pro Retina (Mid 2012) HD 4000
I hadn't updated my OS until El Capitan, I think it came with Lion. I see from the thread this issue has been longstanding but my old OS did not have this issue, the update to El Capitan is definitely when it started for me.

@seajay Oh yeah, that's a great video for demonstrating the issue. Seeing more distortion on this than most other vids.
Same problem with my MacBook Pro Retina mid-2014 Intel Iris

I've got a Mid-2015 13" Retina running 10.11.3, Flux 36.6 with the Intel Iris 6100 doing this exact issue.
I can reliably reproduce this when running in the default "looks like 1280x800" Retina mode. When I change to the "more space" 1680x1050 mode, the issue goes away (and vice versa) - I guess that's why I haven't noticed it until recently as I usually use the more space mode.
Same problem here on a 2015 MBPr with Intel Iris Pro. The problem goes away when I disable automatic graphics switching and use the Nvidia card.

The f.lux team hasn't replied on this topic in 9 months. Is anybody working on fixing this problem?

There is a bug in to Apple, but this is way below us in the system.
All we can do is recommend you disable f.lux while playing a movie.
This happens on a Retina MacBook too (2015) with H5300 graphics, and OS X 10.11.6.
Has anyone seen this issue in MacOS Sierra too?
I'm guessing this won't be resolved without Apple's input, and/or if Apple introduce Night Shift on MacOS..

Just thought I'd say that this bug is still active with HD graphics 4000 on my mid 2012 macbook pro.
When I use gfxcardswitcher to force discreet card while using youtube the issue does not appear.
Same issue as mentioned by users.
This issue is while I play fullscreen videos on Youtube, Udacity. Whites are blown out, blue hues here and there, if you move the cursor the problem goes away for a while and then comes back.
Also this is not just in Safari, it does the same in Chrome too.
I am running
f.lux version 37.7
MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, Late 2013)
Intel Iris 1536 MB
OSX version 10.11.6 El Capitan
This annoying bug has been reported a year ago and it is sad to see that there is no fix yet. I have used F.lux on windows for long and this bug on Mac is kinda making me look for alternatives to F.lux which I really don't want to do.
Please try to fix this.

@shinz4u Agreed, it's a very disappointing lack of action.
It makes the program completely useless in my opinion. If I have to keep turning it off, it is doing me no good in terms of helping with my body's sleep cycle confusion.
Flux replies so far have indicated there will be no fix. I'm still following the thread and hoping they sort it out, but it doesn't seem like anybody cares or is working on it. Can anybody recommend a different program? I give up with this.
I've gotten around the issue thanks to this little app: Shady for Mac.
What's a little strange but very good for this specific purpose is that just running the app with the "shade" setting off still fixes the problem. I'm guessing it's doing something similar to gfxcardswitcher in the background, as soon as it's running, so it's probably affecting battery life too (although I haven't paid attention to that myself).
And of course, turning the thing actually on and reducing the brightness to a minimum ain't bad for your eyes either.
