Description Couret Charles-Antoine 2017-12-16 14:04:06 UTC
Description of problem:
When I'm playing a video or if I'm changing the time of the video (rewind or forward), I got on the entire screen a flip to black and everything go back at normal display after one second (or less).

When the video is starting and if I don't touch the timeline, the display still normal. If I change the current tab with a playing video to another one without video and I go back to the previous tab with video, the issue happened again.

It is the case with Firefox (XWayland) or Totem (Wayland).

I don't have the issue with GNOME on Xorg

Additional info:

I'm using Fedora Rawhide which is up to date (I have this issue for one month).
My graphical card is nVidia Quadro 1000M with nouveau driver.

Comment 1 Couret Charles-Antoine 2018-01-22 12:32:23 UTC
The issue still here.

Comment 2 Fedora End Of Life 2018-02-20 15:22:26 UTC
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 28 development cycle.
Changing version to '28'.

Comment 3 Couret Charles-Antoine 2018-03-11 20:06:26 UTC
The issue is gone.

Comment 4 Couret Charles-Antoine 2018-04-27 10:49:12 UTC
In fact the bug wasn't fixed. My session was X.org where the issue never happened.

But, another information. This blinking arrived when I removed a file from Nautilus. I guess that is related to the Nautilus notification inside the window.
