Crash with H264/AVC videos when using hardware acceleration

The problem is on all android devices I have: Smartphone (6.0.1), Sony Bravia (6.0.1), Xiaomi Mi TV Box (7.0).
I can't attach a log file because there is nothing in it (movian crashes and doesn't get to write to the log).
If I turn off the hardware acceleration then all is ok (although video lags).
All of these that crash are live mpegts streams. If I capture the live stream to a file and try to play it - the audio plays, but no video is decoded.
Here are couple of samples:

I believe that all the streams that crash are 1080i (interlaced). I also noticed that on the Sony TV Movian doesn't use the hardware acceleration to decode MPEG2 - other apps like live channels and VLC do proper deinterlace while using the hardware MPEG2 decoder.
