      Description

      When turning on the HTML5 player at https://www.youtube.com/html5 and playing any video, sometimes it starts flashing up with inverted colors once per second.

      I don't know what triggers it, but it happens around 8 of 10 times for me.

      Downstream bugs:

      QupZilla: https://github.com/QupZilla/qupzilla/issues/1551
      qutebrowser: https://github.com/The-Compiler/qutebrowser/issues/351

      See the attached video - it started flashing right away which isn't visible in the video (dropped frames?), but after some seconds you see it in the video as well.

      I also attached a screenshot of one inverted frame.
