Package: vlc
Version: 2.2.1-2+b2
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,
While I try to play twitch streams using livestreamer I get this error:
VLC media player 2.2.1 Terry Pratchett (Weatherwax) (revision 2.2.1-0-ga425c42)
[0000000000ec0388] core libvlc: Running vlc with the default interface. Use 'cvlc' to use vlc without interface.

[0000000000fcc5b8] core audio output warning: playback too late (74910): up-sampling

So some libraries overuse static TLS...
I think similar bug is described here:
so I don't really know if I should fill this bug against ffmpeg, vlc or

Stream example:
