Hmmm, thinking out loud here, but it's almost like the data rate
drops too low for the decoder at this point. Would make sense since
a pure black screen would have a very low data rate compared to a
much more colourful screen.

If you up for trying out a wild stab in the dark try reverting the
most recent ffmpeg resync commit...
