smilem Why is there no hack to disable it win driver level?
I've had a "crazy" idea which is using a device like a Rasberry Pi with input/output HDMIs, and taking "bad" input and removing temporal dithering (or any known sources of flicker) and sending it back out via HDMI. For example you'd plug your "bad" computer into the Rasberry Pi HDMI and another HDMI into the Rasberry Pi for your monitor -- and your monitor would get the "clean" signal from your deskop.
This would theoretically work without having to worry about every driver in existence and for people who can't install software on a corporate device.
It would work by "holding" back a frame or several, and applying some diff between the frames, and if the diff is small enough, it will change the frame to not flicker. If we were able to present the device as having a high Hz (360Hz) it may not be a large difference from a regular 60Hz monitor.
I have no idea if it would work in any way (will it fix eye strain, will it work technically).
But it is an idea to hack on.
