when I start VLC like this: export LIBVA_DRIVER_NAME=gallium vlc and then inside VLC select VA-API as hardware acceleration and then open a video, my screen goes black after a few seconds and my system becomes unresponsive and I have to force poweroff by long pressing the power button.
I am using Arch Linux with the 3.18.2 Kernel and Mesa 10.4.2 My graphics card: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] RV610/M74 [Mobility Radeon HD 2400 XT]
