I'm asking out of curiosity:
- Does chromium-dev-vaapi from ArchCN support other GPUs, or also only Intel?
- What happened to the chromium-vaapi-other patch, was it lost, or it is fully incompatible with recent Chromium and actually requires full rewrite?

@bugsmanagement currently, the vaapi patch only works with intel graphic cards.

Next time i'll change the description.

I recall it mentioned somewhere here that you might need chromium-vaapi-other for AMD users? Is that still relevant?

Amazing, thank you so much!

@maximbaz done :)

I created the AUR package chromium-vaapi-bin, seems to work :)

@OneObsession you are added as maintainer there as well. Could you please update the binary to 59.0.3071.104, if you have it compiled? So that versions of chromium-vaapi and chromium-vaapi-bin match, and also to test that you have access to everything.

I created the repo and sent you a request for collaborator access:

Will you create the AUR package, or should I do it? My main request for you is to keep updating the binaries in that git repo :)

OneObsession commented on 2017-06-17 10:54

@maximbaz yes this would be neat.

maximbaz commented on 2017-06-17 10:23

@OneObsession just as an idea, do you think we could create chromium-vaapi-bin package? If you don't want to pollute your github account with binaries, I can create a repo and give you write access to it.

For some reason for me on version 59.0.3071.86-2, the GPU process crashes because it selects the discrete NVIDIA card instead of the intel card (i.e. in about://gpu, Under "Driver Information" There are two rows "GPU0" and "GPU1". The line corresponding to my discrete NVIDIA card is "*ACTIVE*" (the opposite is true on chrome 59 and chromium-vaapi 58 from my github). Anybody else have this problem?

I'm using a Dell XPS 9560 with GTX1050 and Kaby Lake Intel graphics. Running Xorg on the intel card with the Nvidia card switched off with bbswitch.

EDIT: resolved by selecting the integrated gpu explicitly as per
