I'm a bit confused. There's a package called libva-vdpau-driver, but maybe libva has nothing to do with libvdpau and my report is invalid.

@cemsbr: You're right libva and libvdpau are different things. There is no vdpau for Intel, so it's completely normal that applications can't find that file. See this post for more info: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=1497828#p1497828

The solution isn't using a wrapper like the bug karol pointed to describes, it's to configure applications to use vaapi. For VLC, this means set "Output" in the "Video" settings to "OpenGL video output (experimental)", and "Hardware-accelerated decoding" in the "Input / Codecs" settings to "VA-API video decoder" (there's two such options, both effectively the same). The wrapper doesn't even work with VLC anymore.
