I assume you did this on Linux?

The motivation for the vcl backend was primarily for Windows, where
there is no equivalent of gstreamer (some OS-level building block that
provides you with codecs). When I tried it last year, actually it was
the only avmedia backend that worked for me on Windows, but perhaps
something regressed since then.
