Washed out videos when using GPU video acceleration

Is anybody else having issues with video playback as of the last maybe 3 driver versions?

All my systems running various AMD GPUs are experiencing the issue. Any application such as Netflix, Kodi etc is displaying washed out colouring to how it should look. Its really noticeable in the blacks as they look grey. Doesn't seem to matter if the screens are set to low or full range RGB, or YCbCr pixel format. I can mitigate it by setting the monitors to the wrong RGB range value but then everything else is off.

 

It was doing it for me on the 1903, 1909 and 2004 on the various systems.

 

My GPUs are R9 380, HD 8330 and R7 on various computers.

 

Seems like other people are experiencing the problems on the later cards as well from reading other posts on various websites.

 

I have put a bug report into AMD through the reporting tool on the later drivers.
