Can you elaborate on what is happening? "My VAAPI is always broken" doesn't clarify what the issue is.

Yes, sorry for not elaborating
Whenever i launch firedragon from terminal i get a message saying:

Crash Annotation GraphicsCriticalError: |[0][GFX1-]: glxtest: VA-API test failed: process crashed. Please check your VA-API drivers. (t=3.48049) [GFX1-]: glxtest: VA-API test failed: process crashed. Please check your VA-API drivers.

Firefox also does the same
