I have this issue whatever the file is. Including reseting blender with factory settings this happens. The problem is not about the render or the video. Is the blender internal video player, probably Mac Os version.

Please update this report to mention the exact version of macOS used, and the exact graphics card, and test whether this is still an issue with the latest version of Blender from
