Would it be possible to get this to work with Arch's community google-chrome-stable package or is this Chromium only?

@securetodeath I don't know, sorry. I'd think it results in the same thing as libva-vdpau-driver-chromium, but implemented differently.

Does this package include all the patches from libva-vdpau-driver-chromium as well? They're not in the PKGBUILD, but perhaps they're already applied in the git repo. Quickly browsing it didn't show the exact patches applied though, hence my question.

most reliable driver for chrome

@jeois @Shished Thanks for the report, updated.

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?

Thanks, updated.
