This package is compiled with 'use_vaapi=true', but you need to pass --ignore-gpu-blacklist if you want to enable hardware video acceleration using VA-API.

@maximbaz How long does compiling chromium takes you? And is there any way to get VP9 hardware acceleration on AMD?

75.0.3770.100-2 has fixed my vp9 and h264 playback issue on Intel HD620.

I think not until the situation stabilizes, we stop making changes and applying patches and VA-API just works for everybody for a while :/

@maximbaz Is there a chance that these changes are going to be merged back to official package?

As per earlier message, I've removed the patch for chromium flags, all we do now is compile chromium with use_vaapi=true and require users to use --ignore-gpu-blacklist (I don't have --use-gl flag and everything still works fine for me).

There's now a patch that fixes video decoding on NVIDIA hardware (see It has been tested by a few BBS users. Please consider incorporating this patch to save us NVIDIA users. Thanks :-D

As one may know, hardware video acceleration is currently broken on NVIDIA hardware.

To run Chromium using VaAPI (use_vaapi=true) two arguments are necessary: --ignore-gpu-blacklist --use-gl=desktop or --use-gl=egl

I have learned today that we don't need to patch Chromium sources to get VA-API support, an interesting alternative is to simply compile Chromium with use_vaapi=true flag and libva as a dependency, and then VA-API stays disabled by default, but users can enable it on case-by-case basis using --ignore-gpu-blacklist.

While I think this is something we should consider doing for extra/chromium, what do you think if we remove the patch from this PKGBUILD, making it look even closer to the extra/chromium? Can you see any drawbacks in doing so, or in doing this in extra/chromium?
