    I've the same problem, so I've tried some test.

    I must use a RenderMode "Camer Near Plane" on Main Camera
    Aspect Ratio "fit Outside"

    In a lot of combinations the video flickering so I've tried to "Hide" sono GameObject group in game.
    The video did not flicker if the all geometry gameobjects was hidden (Terrain, mesh, Skydome).
    If also one gameobject was shown the video start to blink.

    This bug is terrible...

    2017.3.1: Now it is flickering on windows too... I recorded the screen in 60FPS and catched the moment: when videoplayer starts, it is windowed for a frame, then gets pulled out to fullscreen, hence the flickering

    Running into this as well, seems to happen just from adding the VideoPlayer component and rendering to a RenderTexture, I don't even need to display the RenderTexture anywhere.
