I did read it and I read it again, this is the first that you mentioned
that you do not have nvidia hardware, but you are right that makes the
issue sound different. I wonder why its trying to use
libvdpau_nvidia.so regardless? Perhaps this is a red herring? I am not
familiar with vlc.

Another idea is that this is related to DRI2 in which case I would
suggest trying the modesetting xorg driver (Part of xorg-server) and /
or DRI3. You could also try newer versions of xorg and mesa, but this
would be more involved to test.
