Sorry,I don't have much interest in gstreamer or Totem, and don't have Stretch installed as of yet. I can get full vaapi acceleration with my sixth-generation Skylake graphics using a backported mpv or a homebrewed QMPlay2; 4K h.264 mp4 videos show the same 3% cpu use as do 320x240 videos. This is with a lot of backports on top of a Jessie base, so I suppose a Stretch system should behave in the same way.
The MX Linux repositories: Backports galore! If we don't have something, just ask and we'll try--we like challenges. New packages: AzPainter 2.1.0, Pale Moon 27.5.0, Liquorix kernel 4.12-10, mpv 0.27.0, Kodi 17.3, 0ad 0.0.22, Mesa 13.0.6

I also installed mpv. With hwdec=vaapi option in the mpv.conf, video acceleration works as desired, cpu usage swings from 2% to 6% no matter what type of video I play ranging from 240p to 1080p. CPU is a lot cooler now.

MPV is awesome! I use OpenGL for acceleration as vdpau causes intermittent flickering. I only use Totem for interactive DVD's.

I will do the same. But it puzzles me why such a shitty media player Totem is still bundled as the default media player in the major distributions.

It's developed by Gnome.

Ok. This is not the first time I had this issue with Totem, now and then I've experienced since video acceleration came to being, maybe from G45 chipset onwards. Filed a bug: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=101226
Let's hope Gnome people resolves this issue.
