It's not clear from the attachment if you actually performed the
apt-get remove and then reinstall vlc with only the official mirror

While it's true that Marillat's ffmpeg can break debian's package, in
vlc case it should only results in an unloadable avcodec module and a
mostly useless vlc. not a segfault.


Could you make sure to delete your preferences and plugins cache (as
indicated when you run reportbug for vlc) (rm -rf ~/.config/vlc

Install vlc-dbg and gdb and produce a backtrace with gdb
