Sorry, I suppose I should have looked at the frontend log to see what was
happening. After doing that, I saw "NVP: Timed out waiting for free video
buffers". Turns out, all I had to do was comment out the glx driver in my
xorg.conf file, as explained here
I still don't know why it worked fine a week ago. Possibly a system update
or installing VLC? Oh well, as long as it's working now.
