When no subtitles or mousing over in Netflix, this happens (both Dev and Beta)

Hi, 

I've figured the issue when I'm having trouble with Netflix on Edge dev. 

When content from Netflix is playing, and there's no subtitles, there comes a black layer over 90% of the search/favorites. 

 

Active extentions:

Lastpass (Edge store)

Ublock (Edge store)

SponsorBlock (Chrome store)

Windscribe (Chrome store)

 

Active flags:

Smooth Scrolling

Simplify HTTPS indicator UI

Enable 'Prefer:Safe' header

Microsoft Edge Reading View

Microsoft Edge Reading View Text Preference

 

The area inside the red box is the black layer

Also, in full-screen, I'm experiencing another problem (probably related). Framedrops/frame skips often. 

 

Newest update still having issues.

Hi,
do you have the same problems in a fresh environment? (i.e without any custom flags, extensions etc) ?

@HotCakeX Yeah, that's what I tried with Beta. 

Sorry for not clarifying

It's alright,
The Beta it too old for now. Devs said they fix very small bugs in Beta but to see a real change, you have to wait for the next major release for that channel which is every 6 weeks.
I'd recommend using Canary instead. been using it for months, the most stable one so far. Netflix and all of its features work fine there.

@HotCakeX The issue is still persistent on Canary.

Video of the issue (playing the first 30 seconds of the first episode of "The I-Land" using Edge Canary and Game Bar).

Yes unfortunately other users reported the same problem with Netflix, hope developers fix it

@HotCakeX Alright! 

 

I've sent a feedback to the devs with diagnostic data recording and the video. I'm happy that I'm not the only one experiencing the issue.
