So I´m experiencing screen errors flashing for one second and disappearing randomly while watching videos on Safari. Does anyone have the same problem as me, or found a solution for this ? I reseted the T2 and PRAM and still nothing..

I've experienced this same issue on a 2018 15-inch MacBook Pro using both Safari and Chrome. A workaround that seems (although I've had limited time to test) to address the issue is to uncheck Automatic graphic switching in the Energy Saver pane in System Preferences.

I've had that same exact issue with the 2016 15" MBP in Chrome after a september logic board replacement, down to the shape of the glitch (that diagonal white boxy thing). Also happened in photos app while editing. Apple replaced the laptop.

edit: same thing happening with replacement laptop - an i9 2018 with 560x. Hopefully it's a software problem.

If you don't see those artifacts in other usages or using Chrome, then its something to do with Safari, i.e., its software.

it seems that the beta 2 for now fixes both video glitches and the popping sound when you jumping through a video on youtube...the only issue remains when you quit youtube or itunes sometimes still making the same popping sound
But again, after months, the 2018 seems almost perfect with no issues....Apple can't make a new product with almost bug free, and the users/consumers are in present the QA department for Apple...nice, no $$ for QA, cost cut
