I'm trying to play mpeg4 videos recorded by Motion in VLC. Every time I try to play I see only the first frame for the entire video. When I tried to launch VLC using the command I got:

Code:
[0x7f2690c06988] freetype spu text error: failed to load font file /usr/share/fonts/truetype/freefont/FreeSerifBold.ttf
[0x7f2690c06988] freetype spu text error: failed to load font file /usr/share/fonts/truetype/freefont/FreeSerifBold.ttf
[0x7f2694c02af8] avcodec decoder error: more than 5 seconds of late video -> dropping frame (computer too slow ?)


I searched over the Internet I found out that hardware acceleration might be disabled. That was indeed the case - GPU accelerated was turned off but also disabled.
I searched around more and found out that I had to compile my system with the vaapi flag. I did so, but found out that I had to set "nvidia" in VIDEO_CARDS, however, I'm using nouveau.
Anyways, I set "nouveau nvidia", re-emerged world and enabled GPU acceleration, but still no luck...

emerge --info (I already deleted nvidia from VIDEO_CARDS):

Just because sometimes the smallest and seemingly most irrelevant things can hold things up, did you fix the font error?

I'll try to fix that. By the way, it seems that videos work fine in mplayer
