Fix H.264 Decode Performance - Especially for DJI Drones
H.264 footage produced by DJI drones is causing sky high FramePrefetchDelays on multiple systems on site including Xeon based HP Z820s and newer i7-8850 based HP ZBook Studio G5s. These systems are capable of playing back the footage backwards in Telestream Switch without dropping frames.

Well I have the same problem with h264 drone footage from x5s and m2zoom. Performance in latest Premiere Pro 2020 14.0.4 is rubbish. I have to use 2019 ver.13.1.5 - this works good but it's already old.
