Yep, you're right. Turning off VAAPI kills the problem. I am sure it is ideal that I be able to use VAAPI for quality/etc, but for whatever reason, it hates those files.
Personally I never ran into that with the Chromebox, but I never really pushed it.
In the process of trying to load a box with a GeForce 210 I have laying around to see if it goes any better with that using VAAPI. I would assume all of my other boxes are using software deinterlacing, which is why they are not having a problem... right? I figure that is what you mean by that.
In my opinion if VAAPI turned off works then problem solved. There is some content (VC1 stuff for example) VAAPI just can't deinterlace. At least a Chromebox has way more CPU power than a Fire whatever to work with.
