FWIW, mpv blacklists VA-API wrappers like vdpau-va-gl unless the user 
explicitly selects them because they are generally very broken:

Might be worth filing a VLC bug since it should support both VDPAU and VA-API, 
and decode API wrappers should never be preferred. Also, libvdpau_va_gl1 
should never ever be installed by default, but that’s a topic for a different 
mailing list.
