chromium-vaapi is currently having problems with intel. You can follow developments here. For now, I have rolled back to the previous version, I suggest you do the same, until this issue is resolved.

Please add this gpg key to install this package

gpg --recv-keys EB4F9E5A60D32232BB52150C12C87A28FEAC6B20

You can also add keyserver-options auto-key-retrieve to your ~/.gnupg/gpg.conf file.

If you have problems connecting to a Chromecast, just enable the following flag:


and restart Chromium.

Thanks to maximbaz for providing pre-compiled binaries, and thanks to niklaszantner for the tip about Chromecast.

@freefreeno updated the PKGBUILD just now. Sorry for the delay.

The pkgbuild is set to download a build not available anymore on maximbaz repository. Wait kureta to update or use chromium-vaapi from archlinuxcn repository.

Hehe I had to compile many chromium-vaapi builds today and garbage collector cleaned up the old builds including .90-1 one :D Update to the latest 120-2, it has new better VA-API patch! :)

When trying to install this package from pamac in manjaro it is trying to download the normal chromium-vaapi. Here is what I get. Maybe it is supposed to do that but the errors I know are wrong and I use this package all the time.Hope to see it get fixed soon. Also tried it manually and recieved the same errors.

ERROR: Failure while downloading Aborting...

@Elanzer whats your GPU brand (intel/amd/nvidia)? Also, this is just a binary repack of maximbaz's package here. You should also let them know about the problem you're having.

HW decode it's not working for me anymore. It's been some time since I last used YouTube, so idk if is related to vaapi patch or some package.

I'm getting from the terminal:

[28145:28145:1002/] Out of memory. [28263:28263:1002/] Out of memory. [28365:28365:1002/] Out of memory. [28379:28379:1002/] ContextResult::kFatalFailure: Failed to create shared context for virtualization.

chrome://gpu also reports:

Log Messages GpuProcessHost: The GPU process crashed! GpuProcessHost: The GPU process crashed! GpuProcessHost: The GPU process crashed! [32102:32102:1002/] : ContextResult::kFatalFailure: Failed to create shared context for virtualization.
