and unfortunately I can't test VDA (because OSX doesn't have it anymore).

Could you please add a comment where/when it has been removed?

I have tried to find any information about this but only found deprecation
since OS X El Capitan, but not removal:

Not that I've bothered much about missing VDA in FFmpeg (it is too slow and
inflexible on my old MacBook anyway), just want to have clearer picture
about it.
