Bug description:

  Just for totem:  sudo apt remove gstreamer1.0-vaapi

  Or to workaround in all players:  sudo apt remove mesa-va-drivers


  Totem with gstreamer1.0-vaapi and Wayland crashes on my machine with
  AMD Fury graphics card and open source drivers. Video output is just a
  black frame and crash happens within just a few seconds after video
  playback starts.

  Could not reproduce bug on two older Intel laptops with iGPU's where
  hardware acceleration seemed to work fine under Wayland.

  Issue is only present on Wayland, not x.

  I can get hardware accelerated video playback working on Wayland with
  'mpv --hwdec=vaapi-copy --opengl-backend=wayland' but this is the only
  way I have found so far. Even in mpv, no other option than vaapi-copy

  gst-play-1.0 outputs the following error:
  ERROR Internal error: could not render surface for file:///***
  ERROR debug information: ../../../gst/vaapi/gstvaapisink.c(1483): 
gst_vaapisink_show_frame_unlocked ():
