The VPU part could be because of missing firmware. Check if the vpu 
files are present in /lib/firmware.
As for MP4, this is a known problem. You are building Chromium, not 
Chrome. MP4 support is part of the restricted feature set, which is 
included in Chrome but not Chromium. Try a WebM file for example.
