VDPAU is fully supported via the hwaccel API and is usable in the ffmpeg program via the -hwaccel option.  The (deprecated for years) standalone VDPAU decoder which you are trying to use here was removed from master with the major version bump leading to ffmpeg 4.  It is plausible that it was broken before that point (because it never really fit as a decoder and I doubt it ever got much testing once the hwaccel was introduced), but you will likely have a hard time getting anyone to care about such a long-deprecated feature which doesn't exist any more on master.
