    Poor picture quality with latest VLC?

    So the utopic VLC packages recently updated to 2.2.0-pre2, but I am noticing horrible picture quality, at least with h.264 videos.

    I checked the filter chain and nothing is enabled, but I think it may be a decoder issue as it periodically (keyframes?) clears up for a moment.

    Anyone else experiencing this?

    Using Intel Haswell Desktop graphics for reference.

    With VLC, all the movies I've tried work fine: avi, mov, etc.

    It's ok here with Haswell (mobile) though I do switch vlc's video out from Automatic (xv), to OpenGl GLX
    (Also here I have to use prior version of xserver-xorg-video-intel, currently 2.99.910-0ubuntu1.1 from trusty

    vlc 2.2.4 (pre) is showing some other issues -
    http/https that previously worked with no issue is completely borked, bug & some randomly chosen samples from yt & nasa -

    DVD_VIDEO stream (mpeg2) shows a colored line on right side, easily fixed by switching to OpenGl GLX from Auto.. which is XV (XCB

    The new vlc/libav11 packages yesterday fixed the picture quality issue for me.
