It seems the upstream maintainer now includes the chromium-fix patch, according to a quick scan of the code. So, there is no need to apply that patch anymore.

Therefore, simply delete the line containing "chromium-fix.patch" in the prepare() function of the PKGBUILD in order to compile/install for use with chromium-vaapi. It still works fine, with the same exceptions as before.

Otherwise, the package will not build like previous comment mentioned.

This package provides modified libva-vdpau-driver with vp9 decoding added. H264 support is not removed from it.

Installing libva-vdpau-driver-vp9-git will remove: libva-vdpau-driver-chromium (libva-vdpau-driver)

This means installing this driver will remove h.264 support provided by libva-vdpau-driver-chromium for nVidia cards, right?

Would there be a way to keep both h.264 and vp9 support in the driver?
