Thumbs down Horrible blue aliasing/artifacts in black areas during video playback

Tonight I started watching a video on my phone and noticed some terrible blue boxes/artifacts/aliasing during playback. The video in question is a 720p mp4. I played it on my dinc and the same blue boxes/aliasing is NOT present. I do see a very, very minor aliasing happening which is just characteristic of a lossy video encoder. But the blueness is not there on the dinc.

It's hard for me to describe properly, but I might be able to find a video on youtube or publicly available video I can post a URL to so people can see if it happens for them.

I thought perhaps it was the video player I'm using on the nexus (mx player), but I tried moboplayer (which I use on the dinc) and it crashes on the nexus. I guess I can try some other video player on both the dinc and the nexus to compare, but I'm pretty sure this is a problem with the nexus.

I watch a ton of video on my phone, and this is a huge deal breaker for me. I'm willing to put up with the less than stellar signal and other issues, but this is just horrible.

I'll reply as soon as I find a video people can try out to demonstrate the issue. Has anyone else noticed this?!
