Can anyone try to build a libva-chromium-compat package from libva 2.1 branch and build chromium and intel libva drivers with it please? I should have done it but I don't own an intel card to test.

It looks like Fedora for now disables vaapi support:

75.0.3770.80-1 VP9 and H.264 1080p play fine on my BDW desktop with intel-hybrid-codec-driver & libva-intel-driver-hybrid. Xorg of course.

@mazimbaz Please report it here: . One of their contributors are also contributors for chromium and might look into it. Although I won't be too surprised if they ignore it.

Package works fine with amdgpu BTW.

I've pushed the update since it works for some of you, but yeah personally I'm sticking to v74 :(

So who's actually responsible for this bug? The chromium project? There's a huge mess in their issue tracker, and I can see no bugs related reported. It seems that their issue tracker is only used by members of the chromium project.

@maximbaz I can confirm that on my i5 7200u laptop nothing plays using your compiled package. Neither vp9 nor h264.

I briefly tested, H264 and VP9 working fine on Intel HD Graphics 5500 with i965 driver (thou hardware doesn't support VP9 acceleration).

Tried it with ATI radeon driver and h264ify (my hardware does not support vp9 decoding). Everything fine.

With Chromium 75 I can't play any video anymore on YouTube, the playback just doesn't start, I tried H264 and VP9 with both iHD and i965 drivers - anyone has any ideas?

I haven't pushed the patch here, but here it is, and here's a compiled package if you want to quickly try.
