VLC high CPU usage on 1080p and 4k Videos. i3-6100 processor

hey guys…
you do not need to use sm player or mpv
(if you like vlc and want to stick with it
as your default video player)

I encountered the same problem with VLC.

read this article
and use vainfo command
I just installed three va-api packages below and the vlc is working great now.:relaxed:
