Color temperature changes in YouTube full screen.

  • After the latest Windows update V. 1909 (18363.628) playing YouTube in full screen disables color temperature settings. This happens with both Windows night light and other third party software.

    Looks like a Chromium issue as Chrome has same behavior as Opera, but it does not happen with YouTube in Firefox or Edge.

    I’m used to adjustments happening for HDR, but never seen color temperature change for normal YouTube videos.

    Any advice for a fix?

    WIN10-64 Opera 66.0.3515.44 Norwegian. HWA on.

    HWA on.

    Same difference with it off?

    Also, try messing with opera://flags/#force-color-profile.

  • @burnout426

    Thanks! With HWA off this issue is not present.

    How can that be? Obviously I want to run Opera with hardware acceleration on.

    My #force-color-profile is set to sRGB, but this setting does not influence the full screen change.

    Color temp shift is not only YouTube but any Opera or Chrome window that is in full screen (F11).

    When I highlight text in Full Screen the browser reverts back to correct colors.

    Issue is not present with Edge or Firefox – there color management is stable.

    Any tips for further troubleshooting?

    In addition to Chrome, compare with Chromium, Brave, Vivaldi and the new Edge that's Chromium-based, since they're all Chromium-based like Opera. It could be a bug in Chromium with hardware acceleration.

    Check in Opera Beta and Opera Developer to see if it's already fixed. Check in Chrome Beta, Chrome Developer and Chrome Canary too.

    Maybe try an updated drive https://downloadcenter.intel.com/product/126789/Intel-UHD-Graphics-620.

    Maybe it's something in settings for your display ro GPU, even if things work fine in Edge and Firefox.

    If all else fails, you might have to file a bug at https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/list. You can try older versions of Chrome and Opera to see when it started happening.

    You can turn hardware acceleration back on, turn on chrome://flags/#ignore-gpu-blacklist, restart Opera and Chrome and try again.

    You can look in opera://gpu to see if it lists any issues having to do with color.

    You can play with some of the GPU command-line switches. https://peter.sh/experiments/chromium-command-line-switches/#disable-gpu.

    You can play with chrome://flags/#use-angle.

  • @burnout426 Thank you for suggestions.

    I’ll just wait a few versions and see what happens.

    Since no one else on this forum has problems with color/brightness change in Full Screen (F11), I’ll put it on the anomaly/unicorn account.

    I also have your same full screen problem and there is no solution yet, I will keep an eye on what happens !

  • Issue persists in Opera 67.0.3575.31 and after Windows latest update 18363.693.

    Every time Opera or Chrome goes into full screen (F11) the brightness and color profile changes. Does not happen in Firefox and Edge.

  • Hi,
    I have the same issue.
    I also have a Lenovo X1C6 with HDR display.
    It is maybe Lenovo related?
    What is clear is that you are not a singular case.
