**IMPORTANT**: We are using new VAAPI patch now. Enable new flags: "Hardware-accelerated video" and "Hardware-accelerated mjpeg decode for captured frame".


Please discuss this package in, there is a bigger audience watching the comments.

Rebuild it because libva has been updated to 2.1

The vaapi implementation of a browser is always going to be worse than a media player.

You have all kinds of layers, and interaction between layers.

That said I've been tinkering with it as well and it does feel like cpu usage should be a little bit less.

Can anyone confirm this, Playing youtube videos on VLC yields less CPU usage as compared with Chromium even though both are hardware accelerated . chrome://media-internals/ reports GPUVideoDecoder but still I am getting High CPU usage like 85% of CPU.

thanks so much for this, can finally watch html5 videos without my laptop being a space heater :)

well, 63 was just released but it's not included sadly

That is certainly the hope, we are using that exact patch that has promise to be merged in the official chromium [1] - you can star it to be notified of the updates. Unfortunately it was created back in June and since then nobody from Chromium team has given any feedback on it, so it is impossible to predict when it will become part of the official chromium.

Is the official chromium package going to support the new patch soon, obsoleting this package? There was something about this on Phoronix. Chromium 63?

There is a new version of mesa, it was just released today, and the last comment in AUR/chromium-vappi suggests that everything works now with libva2 - have a look :)

gourdcaptain commented on 2017-11-12 00:24

Yeah, you need libva 2.0.0. Also, if you're using libva-mesa-driver, even on Arch that needs to be rebuilt against the new libva - I opened a bug report for that and rebuilt it myself to check.

Hardware acceleration stopped working after the new update. I am using Manjaro, do we need to have libva2 ?
