lots of "Player(0): dropping frame to catch up, lateness=37000 usec" when using the Bob deinterlacer on VAAPI v1.
AVSync2 already ticked. not something i've done myself so i assume it's default enabled?
Some of the vaapi2 hw-va options work but get a lot of AVSync time drift when seeking (1200ms). The AVSync process does realign over a few seconds.

cpu/gpu isnt the gruntiest thing (https://ark.intel.com/products/81071/Intel-Celeron-Processor-N2830-1M-Cache-up-to-2-41-GHz-) so assume it's just lacking power to handle the more intensive deinterlacers.

any ideas why i'm now having issues between 29>30 upgrade? while i don't know what i was running on v29, i'd of thought that v30 upgrade wouldn't of touched the playback config so does that point to something other than the work your doing on avsync2?
