I'm really not sure what changed to make 4K video so stuttery now in
totem. The CPU is fairly low and goes through the roof only if I
uninstall VAAPI. So VAAPI is working, and it works smoothly in mpv too.

Since I could last play 4K smoothly in totem there has been:
  * A mesa update 17.2 -> 18.0
  * A Xorg update 1.19.5 -> 1.19.6
  * Kernel updates
  * Hardware changes (I changed from a Haswell to Kaby Lake desktop)

Bug description:
  Totem pauses and stutters during video playback even when CPU usage is
  low.

  After figuring out how to play videos with full hardware accelerated
  decoding (e.g. <= 10% CPU), I was surprised to find Totem still pauses
  and stutters during playback. Other apps like Mplayer, VLC and even
  gst-play-1.0 never have this problem.
