It used to be so that avcodec was in the without-X package. But these
days, avcodec depends on vaapi which depends on X. So avcodec belongs in
the with-X package.
I do not disagree that it severely limits the usability of vlc-nox. But
there is nothing VLC can do about it. It would need changes within lavc.
