Issue with VLC player with .mkv (segmentation fault)

Hi everyone! I have an issue with VLC player while trying to run .mkv file:

$ vlc <filename>.mkv     
VLC media player 3.0.8 Vetinari (revision 3.0.8-0-gf350b6b5a7)
[0000564e293045b0] main libvlc: Running vlc with the default interface. Use 'cvlc' to use vlc without interface.

The issue is not with vlc, but with hardware acceleration of your videocard.

install libva-utils (if needed) and post the output of vainfo .

If that also fails, try

LIBVA_DRIVER_NAME=vdpau vainfo

and post output.

Multi-init booting with apg Openrc and systemd coexisting
Automounting : not needed, i prefer pmount
Aur helpers : makepkg + my own local repo === rarely need them

Yes. Don't bootleg videos.

Thanks for your answer! Installation the nvidia-utils package was the solution to the issue for me.
