For now I just switched to smplayer because it not crashing when using VDPau. It looks like VLC build in sabayon is not stable.

I think it depends on VLC hardware acceleration + nvidia

For me , VLC runs fine on GPU Intel and HW acceleration enabled
[Che Cos'è Il Calcolo Distribuito (BOINC)

BOINC ready ! Sabayon+BOINC = BILD ,my Sabayon spin :cyclops: - Ready to crunch for the Science everywhere :)

For me, SMPlayer has issues too, because sound and image are desynchronizing often.

I've had vlc crash on me and I'm using an AMD GPU. I'm wondering if something wasn't quite re-compiled when we switched back to ffmpeg.

Hi, did you manage to find the reason, at least?

Worsened!
Now that beast! deep-freezes the GUI(gnome). No more actions(mouse,keyboard,menus) but CtrlAltDel possible.

I found this error message:
org.gnome.Shell.desktop[2684]: Window manager warning: Buggy client sent a _NET_ACTIVE_WINDOW message with a timestamp of 0 for 0x240194b (Select one)

Maybe that caused this error then:
kernel: vlc[26210]: segfault at 10 ip ... error 6 in libvdpau_avcodec_plugin.so

Follow for Sabayonino advice (if you are on Nvidia card). Uninstall drivers and userspace and revert to the older version (384.*). Check your kernel version else. (I have no issues with installed from portage nvidia-drivers-390.12).
