On the one hand, if disabling VT is safe, then "the safe way" is to disable 
hardware decoding altogether for affected codecs. It avoids glitches in this 

On the other hand, if disabling VT is unsafe because software decoding is too 
slow, then this commit is not safe at all. In that case, this commit actually 
would break playback, not fix it.
