Bug Description

reverting to 1.3.2 restores the desired behaviour.
I use xine-ui 0.99.9-1.2 configured for vaapi video output backend.
xine libs are of version 1.2.6-1build1.

in xine logs I see this :
[h264 @ 0x7f2ce0003920] hardware accelerator failed to decode picture

initially the picture is reset to green screen, then it morphs somewhat, then blinks black and reset to green again.

with 1.3.2 everything looks fine

This looks a lot like http://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/libva/2015-January/003077.html. Since upstream is still waiting on more info, could you please contact them and provide them with the info necessary to fix this bug?

In discussion with <email address hidden> we found that this bug is reproducible only in xine, no other players (I tested at least mpv -vo=vaapi). So this should be reassigned to xine package.
