Update: One of the tests has shown that the problem persists on certain devices even if the hardware acceleration is enabled. The 4 screenshots below were taken on Windows 10, Chrome 47.0.2526.111 m (64-bit), nVidia GeForce GT240M.

    Can you share a comparison of a regular video-frame and is your player Flash or HTML5? – Gyan Jan 16 '16 at 15:00
  • What do you mean by a regular video-frame? The picture I've posted contains 2 screenshots of the same video-frame: with hardware acceleration disabled on the left, and with hardware acceleration enabled on the right. Both screenshots have been taken in Google Chrome while watching the same video. The player is HTML5. – Tamás Bolvári Jan 16 '16 at 15:04

  • I'll take a screenshot soon of this video. – Tamás Bolvári Jan 16 '16 at 15:41
  • @Mulvya I've added new screenshots, hope this helps. – Tamás Bolvári Jan 16 '16 at 16:16
