This still seems to be not working. It would be extremely useful to get the view as render to work in the viewport background images.
Lighting and matching CG to image plates would get a lot easier if one could actually see the image plates in the right color space in the viewport.

According to the FFmpeg documentation DivX doesn't support the crf parameter we're using. Instead, it'll have to use the qscale parameter.
Something for @Sybren A. Stüvel (sybren)?

@Sergey Sharybin (sergey) would be better to decide what to do with this.

Thank you for reporting and investigating this.

Ok, so this:
does the conversion for other programs to read colors identical to png.
-color_primaries 1 -color_trc 1 -colorspace 1
makes Blender recognize the converted colors properly.

Since last asking for information it has been 7 or more days, due to the policy of our bug tracker we will have to archive the report until the requested information is given.

Proxies for scene strips should be replaced by cache dumping system, so I would also close this.
This is because cache system will manage validity of a frame, so we can do minimal necessary rebuild instead of manual re-render.

Cannot reproduce here. The reference image stays when adding a cylinder and adjusting the options.

The variant from Daniel Salazar in another branch (https://developer.blender.org/T57457) works only with video textures (textures type 'movie' displayed and rendered normal).

As of 19-Dec-18 bug is fixed I think because now blender don't crash
Cannot reproduce, not sure I understand correctly:

I totally agree with this. I saw many users losing their work since blender does not automatically pack or save generated images inside Blender.
Blender's Automatically Pack Into .blend option is super cool, but it should also apply to generated images as well, not only external images.

No, it's a limitation of the color management implementation, more of a to do item.

Can confirm, checking...

This is about Eevee, right?
Because cycles updates both in rendered viewport and final render.
Thank you for your reply. Please pardon my error. This is my first time at this. In reply, I opened the file, selected File/External Data/Pack All Into .blend, and saved the file.

@Chris Outwin (cfromns) Please embed the image into the .blend file, otherwise we cannot see anything (besides a nice pink square)…
