I installed VLC on an AMD machine (x86_64). Machine have previously used a Gentoo as well as a headless NAS, but came to a point where I wanted a new clean Gentoo that was utilizing media and hardware better.
Most things seemed easy enough to get up and running this time, but VLC seems a bit sick. It can play media, but seem to get stuck after playing one file (It seem to have problems with most video formats doesn't seem to "leave").
I want to use player from external machine, so I am using ncurses. It works well, but make the problem that I have with VLC more apparent. If I load a directory it plays the first file and then seems get stuck at end. If I use 'q' to exit, it often don't exit (seems to exit when no video as in mp3). I can CTRL-C here to force it to close.
In the graphical interface I seen it close window when I try to play files. I seem to be able to play one video. There is no problems playing the video (at least through ncurses. Problem seems to be linked to videos.

(I know I could have provided more information, but I needed to track problem down. I been downgrading and shooting off use flags without finding a solution)
The integrated graphics is radeon (PALM). I use radeon driver (AMD_GPU seemed closed for business with therelease of AMD_GPU version 16).
x11 options are AccelMethod=Glamor and ColorTiling, ColorTiling2D and TearFree are set on.
Added driver in kernel.

My current activated use flags are:

(Edit) Seems vlc / libvdpau have problems with my machine, so gotta give vdpau a minus for now (for vlc). I still got vdpau in global and vaapi handles nicely.

My issue is closed, leaving this open as there still is an issue with

Off to dig into firefox/pa issue. Not sure I need PA, so I'll probably just remove it. Guess it would be nice having remote devices just hook up though.
