Intel VAAPI howto with Leia v18 nightly based on Ubuntu 18.04 server
Skip means: render too slow, yes - so that RenderManager is starting to skip frames.
Drop means: last resort -> decoder should throw decoded frames away ...

Check with which content it happens, if it's 1080i50 - change the deinterlacing method from MCDI to Bob(*) and see (also bilinear scaling, which should be default when you use the settings I said). If it's 720p50 - change the scaler to bilinear and see what happens.

* Bob: is done in OpenGL -> this increases CPU load, but decreases gpu load.
* VAAPI-BOB: is using VAAPI for deint.
First decide what functions / features you expect from a system. Then decide for the hardware. Don't waste your money on crap.
