Thanks for your all packets

Answer from vlc team : this is a libavcodec pb not a vlc pb .

What is VDPAU-related about this crash? The backtrace indicates you are using VA-API or do I miss something?

And please install the vlc-debug packages to produce a useful backtrace and add the missing information (disassembly and register content), see
