Bug Description

When play a video with gthumb, it crashes with "Segmentation fault", after upgrade to Ubuntu 20.10
No problem with pictures.

Same behaviour in with hardware (and not) video support in Extensions.

It seems the problem is not specific to gthumb.
The segfault happens in for many programs:
gcompris-qt: - it is how it fail for me

It seems that segfaults happen with free intel-media-va-driver but not with intel-media-va-driver-non-free. At least in my case gcompris started working after the replacement.

Please try to replace the free driver like this:
apt install intel-media-va-driver-non-free
