You can't solve it before it happens, because it's already happened.
It's in VLC 2.2.4. In fact, the issue already existed in VLC 2.1 and
earlier. User had to explicitly enable hardware acceleration, which
stealthily and forcefully disabled threading. Now the user has to
disable threading, which stealthily enables hardware acceleration.
Either way, there is no automatic switch between hardware and threaded
software decoding. And on Windows VLC, I think there never was.
