Bug Description

On Ubuntu 18.04, 18.10 and one can only assume 19.04 Videos application doesn't render most of the videos correctly but instead renders something like a fake heat map of the video.

I've attached the screenshot to show you the bug.
Here is also download the video I was watching, a Big Buck Bunny by Blender Foundation:

OS: Ubuntu 18.10 x86_64

Now I've tested this on Ubuntu 18.04 and 18.10 with amdgpu that comes in the kernel, with amdgpu-pro installed and with ROCm on both X-org and Wayland. All 12 tests showed the same result. Also the result stayed the same on the stock kernel and the latest kernels.
