Lately whenever I watch a video, whether It's on Youtube or a movie disc (dvd, blu ray, doesn't matter) or a Twitch stream, the screen flickers for a second and the color dulls. Sometimes text will look a little blurry too. Only when I pause or close the video or click on another tab does the screen flickers again and the color become as bright and vibrant as I had It. I checked the Nvidia Control Panel and the color format and dynamic range are set to RGB and Full while nothing else looks out of line. I recall having this Issue before a couple years ago on another PC but I can't for the life of me remember what I did to fix It.

Um, help?

I tried googling this, all I got was make sure It's set to RGB and Full which It Is but the problem still persist.

no problem glad it worked. if i remember correctly it has something to do with detecting certain monitors as tvs rather than monitors during full screen video playback? causing the screen to flicker as if changing inputs and temporarily switching the color range to limited like a tv? and switching that option to desktop programs assures it's always detected as a pc monitor. i dont remember the full reason
