 Summary of the bug:
 The file output_bad.webm has wrong colors (pink overlay):
 - when shown as a preview icon in Windows 10
 - when played in Google Chrome 84
 - when included in a MS PowerPoint (2016) presentation

 How to reproduce:
 # Get image file
 /500px-SMPTE_Color_Bars.svg.png > input.png

 # Convert according to instructions:
 ffmpeg -i input.png -c:v libvpx-vp9 -crf 30 -b:v 0 output_bad.webm

 ffmpeg -i input.png -c:v libvpx-vp9 output_also_bad.webm

 # Compare to other format
 ffmpeg -i input.png output_good.mp4

 # I also tried a palette like here https://stackoverflow.com/q/58832085/
 ffmpeg -i input.png -vf palettegen palette.png
 ffmpeg -i input.png -i palette.png -lavfi paletteuse -c:v libvpx-vp9 -crf
 30 -b:v 0 output_still_bad.webm

 Reproduced using ffmpeg 3 on OpenSUSE LEAP 15.1, and using ffmpeg 4.3 on
 Windows 10.

 With some different input data (different set of png files), the problem
 only occurs only with "-crf 30 -b:v 0", but not without. With yet
 different input data, it does not happen at all.
