Color Management for Youtube on Mac platform.

Posted

Does Firefox support applying display profile when viewing online streaming videos like Youtube? How to configure it? I could not do it, despite manually turning on some color management options in the config. Currently my MacBook Pro only displays proper video color in Safari. See also my video illustrating the issue: https://youtu.be/ZskQydAGBKY

Hello Sunlit,

It looks like you pretty much answered your own question here :

https://forums.macrumors.com/threads/watch-youtube-on-macbook-pro-how.2192580/

On the "about:config" page, you will of course have toggled these preferences :

"gfx.color_management.mode" => "1" "gfx.color_management.enablev4" => "true"

See these articles (if you haven't already) :

So, no luck for streaming video in 2019? I find it hard to believe the developers are ignoring such a glaring issue!
