How to fix Netflix Screen Flicker/ Flashing in Full screen: MacBook

Many Mac users have expressed dissatisfaction with Netflix’s flickering on their computers and televisions. They said that Netflix flickers when viewing movies in full screen and that it won’t remain in full screen for long periods of time. I’m going to inform you about the remedies to this problem in this section. If you are experiencing the same problem, this article will assist you in resolving it.

Solution 1: Make sure to use HTML5 to Play Netflix

If you are running the most recent version of the Mac operating system, it will support HTML5 for playing Netflix movies. Because the usage of Silverlight has resulted in a slew of complications. For those who are using an earlier Mac version, you must first determine if your Mac is compatible with the HTML5 version of the site.

I’ll tell you how to check it out.

  • To begin, click on the Apple logo and then choose About this Mac. If your Mac is not already up to date, you may upgrade it to the most recent version using this menu.

Solution 2: Delete Browser Cookies and History on safari

In Safari

  • Launch Safari on your computer.
  • Go to Safari->Preferences->Privacy to change your settings.
  • Select “Block all cookies” from the drop-down menu. You may prevent cookies from being stored on your computer by turning on this option.
  • Select “Manage Website Data” from the drop-down menu.
  • Choose the website that has cookies and other data saved on it. You have the option of selecting one or more websites.
  • Select “Remove” from the drop-down menu. If you wish to delete cookies from all websites, choose “Remove All” from the drop-down menu.

Solution 3: Restart the web browser

It is possible that restarting the browser that you are currently using would resolve this problem. As a result, close the browser and relaunch it. In addition, you may watch your favourite movies and television episodes on Netflix.

Solution 4: Restart your Mac in Safe Mode (Safe Boot)

Many difficulties on your Mac may be resolved by restarting your computer in Safe Mode. Safe Mode, on the other hand, prevents you from using several functions.

  • Shut off your Mac by selecting Apple menu->Shut Down.
  • Start your Mac by pressing the power button.
  • As soon as you hear the starting sound, press and hold the Shift Key for as long as you can until the sound stops. On the screen, you can see the Apple logo in full.
  • Continue to hold down the Shift key until you see the Login Window appear.
  • To log in, you’ll need to enter your User Name and Password. If you have FileVault enabled, you may be required to log in twice.

Solution 5: Turn Off  the Subtitles

Some users have reported that turning off the subtitles when watching Netflix in Safari has cured the Flickering problem for them. So all you have to do now is switch off the subtitles and see whether your issue has been resolved or not.

  • Begin by launching Netflix and then Log into your account and start watching the video that you’ve been assigned to view.
  • Scroll the mouse wheel until a conversation icon appears; just click on it to initiate the dialogue.
  • The preferred audio that you have picked will be shown in the conversation box.
  • To turn off the subtitles, go to the subtitles section and click on the off button.
