On my machine with Radeon card, I think this was the essential step that
made it work for me. I got "Using hardware decoding (vaapi-copy)." when
combined with --vo=xv and "Using hardware decoding (vaapi)." when
combined with --vo=gpu.

It may have helped that I build my packages with MesaLib, libdrm, glu,
glew, and gle all from pkgsrc. It used to be necessary some time in the
past and I never checked if I could switch back.

it took me a while before I found a file where it worked; all too often
it didn't work because of something like "[ffmpeg/video] hevc: No
support for codec hevc profile 2."
