    I have the same exact problem, my phone runs fine in every app and every program. But when I play any video on YouTube or Facebook the screen starts flickering and gets distorted. My phone is the s4 i9500. When I restart my phone it becomes ok. But I'm worried that it might become a permanent problem and restarting it might not help later on. Is there any solution for this problem? Is it a kit Kat 4.4.2 problem? Please help guys..

    I had such an issue few days ago. Not only with videos even on browsing, Facebook, etc. It wasn't distortion of pictures just some kind of light blinking. But actually it disappeared next day. Hope was kit kat issue.

    I think it is a kit Kat issue. Ever since I updated my phone it's been nothing but problems. My battery life is horrible now and the video play back issue keeps coming back. I hope that we'll get the 4.4.3 update. It came out on nexus devices and will come out for the other devices later on. I hope it's soon though.

    Ofcourse its the problem of kitkat version.So when I contacted the Samsung support centre they told me to switch off and on, but the issue repeats.May be you have to take the phone to service centre or let us wait for the next update version.

    Have you guys got any of the smart features (Smart stay, Smart pause) turned on? If so, try turning these settings off as bad lighting cause the screen to flicker when these settings are enabled.
