Any red or pink in any video is blurry

  • I had this same problem awhile ago where in any video player, youtube or even vimeo, any color that is red or pink is blurry. It made me uninstall Opera it was that annoying. It's been months since that and I just re-installed Opera. And guess what? I have the same problem. How do I fix this? Here is a screenshot of a random video I clicked on in YouTube. Notice the pink and red.

  • Tried to look at your screenshot in another browser? Looks fine here (in Opera 24), which since it is a screenshot might be expected. That is, the problem is related to your hardware (as well as Opera), so looks fine on other hardware.

    Best I can suggest is disabling hardware acceleration. Go to (Menu) > Settings and scroll to the bottom to enable the checkbox for Advanced Settings. A section named "System" will appear just above that with only one setting; clear the checkbox to disable hardware acceleration. As the description says, you'll then have to restart Opera to see if it makes a difference.
