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 Thanks. Do you get any errors in chrome://gpu logs section? There are a lot of changes including a new vp9 encoder.

Thanks for your help! Given that there's a 4h build between debug attempts, I'm happy to run the tests for you if you have some ideas.

Disabling MojoVideoDecoder didn't help, I see "GpuVideoDecoder" in chrome://media-internals, but VP9 videos don't play as well :(

@maximbaz. I will look for changes in file from 72 and 73. I don't have an intel GPU so can't debug. Chromium is running just fine on my both of my PCs running amdgpu.

Meanwhile try disabling Mojo using the flag --disable-features=MojoVideoDecoder

Foreigncon: just tried, the problem persists :(

Foreigncon commented on 2019-03-18 09:43

@maximbaz Can you bundle ffmpeg and libvpx and see if the problem persists or not?

chromium-vaapi 73.0.3683.75-2 is still unable to play vp9 videos :( intel hd 620

Oh I'm well aware :( It's compiling now, I'll push once it succeeds.

@maximbaz the patch for [extra] chromium got removed (commit), we need this again.

maximbaz commented on 2019-02-07 21:45

UPDATE: the patch has been integrated to extra/chromium!! Please install it and test! For feedback and questions, please don't write comments, but go to our new forum thread instead:

IMPORTANT: VA-API patch has been integrated into extra/chromium! We will remove this package at some point, and we will lose the comments section, so we need a new place to continue the discussions.

I created a new thread on BBS, please let's move all discussions there already now!
