I've noticed that while charging the videos that I'm watching (youtube, facebook, movies, etc.) turn black and white. It doesn't happen all the time, but it's starting to happen more frequently than not and it's a little annoying. I've tried uninstalling/reinstalling the graphics and nada. Anyone else have any idea why this is happening and how I can fix this? Thanks, in advance.

If the videos do not use Flash Player, disabling 'Hardware Acceleration' in the web browser's settings should fix that.

Firefox Quantum: Options >> General >> Scroll down to 'Performance' settings & untick 'use hardware acceleration when available'.

AMD Catalyst Controller Setting Fixed the issue for me.

Video Section > AMD Steady Video > Uncheck the box "Enable AMD Steady Video"

Worked for me, hope it helps you.

Thank you so much! I tried several other solutions posted on the web and this one actually worked! Only some of the videos on youtube were doing this and i couldn't figure it out. I was watching tutorials for making Halloween cards and I couldn't see the colors on the cards. It was pretty important to see the color they were using so thanks again!
