    Hi all,

    Recently updated to OS 13.4 and am finding flickering issues when watching video in full screen I'm using a MacBook Pro 13inch 2017.

    It happens in iTunes and Safari regardless of what site I'm using. Moving the mouse or adjusting the volume seems to trigger it. Basically anything that causes the user interface to overlay on top of the video.

    Anyone else experienced this? Any fixes.

    Yea tried it and flickers. MacBook Pro 15" 2017 here. Also had an issue earlier today when waking from sleep the screen went crazy flickering rapidly, like going on and off (black to desktop to black). Triggered when I moved the mouse or tried to use dock. Seems like a problem with the integrated display driver?

    Yeah I get the same when waking my mac, I get a screen of static when the screen first comes on for a few seconds.
    Anyone got any ideas on a fix? Is it possible to reinstall drivers?

    Hi, I am having the same problem in my 2015 13" Retina MBP. The flickering happens when watching videos or playing video games in full screen. I've also noticed that when I shut down the computer, an image of the last full screen app (youtube videos or games) is shown. I'll try to add photos.

    I rang customer support regarding mine and they were unable to find a solution so have suggested a trip to the genius bar. They tried reinstalling the OS, clearing the vram and a few other bits but no luck. Ill post back once I have been in with what they have said.

    Won't be for a few weeks as don't have time.
