alien's vlc, -current and SBo's libva

I want to let vlc take use of my Intel HD's H264 hardware decoder. I installed libva with the SlackBuild from SBo. But Alien said libva should match the version vlc built with. So I decided rebuild vlc with new libva.

So I changed the LIBVA to 0.31.1-1+sds4 and added --enable-i965-driver to libva's configure. Building was fine but when I opened a flash video(h264) it said that I don't have h264 plugin and refused to continue. After I changed the version number back, vlc can play h264 again.

As a compromise, I comment out make_libva in the building phase. All things went well then. It won't consume too much CPU even when play large h264

So what is wrong with new libva? I noticed vlc 1.1.4 was released, but I think Alien is more qualified to bump the version. So I didn't change that.

Yes, my question raises from there. I just don't know why new libva would disable h264 plugin of vlc. BTW, build vlc with new libva will have
but vlc just refuse to play h264... ;(
