"Suddenly" the mp4-videos from my mobile phone cannot be played anymore,
[00007f236c0b6378] vdpau_avcodec generic error: decoder profile above limits: level 51 3840x2160

Thanks to everybody for helping!

The solution was to change in vlc settings -> video -> output from "automatic" to something without VDPAU, I changed to "OpenGL GLX Videoausgabe (XCB)". And all videos play perfectly.

According to the help from David Haller it obviously is a problem of my graphics card (NVidia GeForce GTX 460) that does not support VDPAU for large h.264 videos (large in pixel size).

"Something" in recent updates must have changed the behavior of the vlc video output setting "automatic" to use VDPAU even when the graphics card doesn't support it for this video. So changing manually from automatic to another output solved the problem for me.
