Recently I have noticed that when watching YouTube on Chrome, the video is motion interpolated (the "soap opera" effect). When I watch the same video on Firefox using the Flash plugin there is no motion interpolation. Here is an example video:

After doing some research I found out the reason for this. Chrome/Google recently activate a program they call "Project Butter".

I find motion interpolation extremely obnoxious. Is there a way to turn it off? (ideally without using cookies, not psyched about Google tracking me either, which has gotten really creepy recently)

This may be due to some youtube videos playing in 60fps, try clicking settings on the video and selecting one that doesn't have 60fps. I think butter was something for Android

  • OP states that other browsers aren't affected, so it's not a matter of framerate.
