1. What is the current status of user repositories providing pre-build packages for this?

2. Do the -vaapi patches work with the current chromium 59 branch?

Hello guys,
does anyone knows is it possible to force chromium use h264_cuvid and vp9_cuvid (that's nvidia cuda stuff) from system ffmpeg? I have gtx1060 and working vdpau (tested in mpv) and vdpau backend for VA-API (libva-vdpau-driver), but with this chromium package I encounter problem described here:
As result, hw accel doesn't work at all. I think I should try to use h264_cuvid and vp9_cuvid from system ffmpeg as decoders (they work perfect at mpv), but ffmpeg doesn't have any config files except encoding presets.

Hi Guys,

i've finally updated the chromium package to the latest stable version.

@samcv can you update your Server$arch/ again to provide
precompiled packages for those who don't want to compile it from source?

@OneObsession Could you upload a binary package of your latest build? I can't compile chromium because my laptop doesn't have enough ram.

Looks like OneObsession beat me to it - I also did took the chromium-dev package and modified it slightly to enable vaapi on the latest stable build:

For me it works on my Kaby Lake intel GPU but not on my Pascal Nvidia card in an optimus laptop. It also doesn't work in wayland (it crashes when you type anything and there are libva errors and/or segfaults in the console

Hi guys,
i have updated the PKGBUILD for chromium 58 with vaapi patch on my git
I have borrowed the patch from the chromium-dev build, so the credit goes to them.
Note: I only have tested it on Intel Graphics.

@samcv perhaps you could look at the files and rename some things to chromium-vaapi instead of chromium so we can update it on AUR.

If demand is high, i can upload a binary package.

took me forever to find the full patch download link, but I finally found it. Use Ctrl + F to search the page for:

Or click here

Look like it was last rebased four months ago. You could try applying the patch to a chromium from a few months ago. It could be difficult if you don't know C or C++ though in case of conflicts.

But if anybody wants to attempt:
* Check the branch point and see what version 4 months ago branched out here looks like 56 *could* work.

* Change the PKGBUILD to download an older chromium version.
* Run `updpkgsums` to update the sha1 checksums.`
* `makepkg -o` which will extract the chromium sources but not compile
* download that patch linked above into `src/chromium` folder and run `patch < filename.diff`. If that can't find the files, try with `patch -p1 < filename.diff`.
* If you can tell me how many files did not successfully patch, and which ones, I may have the time to help see if we can apply that patch.
