F37 dropped vaapi support from mesa because of patent issues. I don't
know if that is your issue, but there are freeworld packages on
rpmfusion that restore the functionality. But, they require a
dnf swap to do so.
dnf swap mesa-va-drivers mesa-va-drivers-freeworld
dnf swap mesa-vdpau-drivers mesa-vdpau-drivers-freeworld
Buf that was the case
should Fedora have not removed these
two packages from current f37's repos completely?
But also 'vainfo' does not return errors, or to put it
differently, does return something.

If you just upgraded, then you probably don't have an older kernel to
try, but you could try a newer kernel by updating. Also, you could get
an older kernel at
by downloading the kernel rpms you have installed and install it with
dnf -C install [kernel rpms you downloaded]
in the directory where the rpms are.
