Totem "Watching a WebM video over HTTPS" test never passes on Jenkins

- virtio GPU without 3d accel
- same GPU as the one we use on Jenkins:
type='qxl' ram='65536' vram='131072' vgamem='16384'

wget https://tails.boum.org/lib/test_suite/test.webm works just fine
when run by hand on worker1.ant01 and isotesterN.lizard. The former uses
our VPN to connect to tails.b.o while the latter uses direct
inter-lizard-VM IP connectivity to do so. Both resolve tails.b.o to a
