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.
