Bug Description

When viewing multiple videos fullscreen in sequence the image sometimes block. Here are the steps to reproduce:

1. Create a folder with multiple videos in any format
2. Launch vlc by running something like "vlc *.mp4"
3. Make the video fullscreen by pressing F
4. Skip through to other videos by pressing N

At this point most videos will work fine but sometimes the video will change and then stop. The interface becomes completely unresponsive to N/F/Space. Doing Alt-Tab seems to reveal that the video has actually been playing as the interface is now responsive and the video is farther ahead.

I don't know if this is a VLC or gnome-shell/mutter bug
