Netflix Desktop plays audio but does not display video on certain systems, even with compositing enabled.

This bug evolved from bug 1083862. https:/
On certain systems, Netflix Desktop plays audio but does not display video. On some of them, this is fixed by enabling compositing, on others, enabling compositing doesn't seem to help.
More specifically, on this bug reporter's specific system, running Netflix Desktop in a window and then moving the window around seems to temporarily solve the issue, though this introduces noticable lag which seems to correct itself after a certain amount of time.
In a possibly related bug, after having this issue, resolving it temporarily with the above, and then using it for some time, Netflix Desktop has a tendency to suddenly lock up and become unresponsive to input, necessitating being killed either by Ctrl+C in the terminal it was started from or, if it wasn't started in a terminal, finding the process and killing it.
Audio never seems to be affected.
Debug log will be attached in a reply later as I (the bug reporter) do not currently have access to the system affected, someone is watching Hulu on it :P
Dell Inspiron 530
Intel Celeron 450 (2.2GHz Conroe-L)
