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

Just curious, has anyone gotten vp9 acceleration to work?

I don't know about AMD users, but I'm on Intel and vp9 acceleration works as expected.

thanks @digitalone Just curious, has anyone gotten vp9 acceleration to work?

It works with latest mesa packages adding 'allow_rgb10_configs=false' into /etc/environment.

Thanks to @enihcam.

Resolved downgrading mesa, mesa-vdpau and libva-mesa-driver to 17.3.7-1. New version 18 breaks GPU decoding on AMD cards using radeon/amdgpu drivers. I stay with amdgpu driver now.

digitalone commented on 2018-04-07 20:38

I switched to amdgpu, but that's the same. ;(

I'm on Intel, so intel-vaapi-driver. I have mesa installed, but to be honest I don't know if it is actually being used or not.

digitalone commented on 2018-04-07 19:51

I only discovered it today. I think it's mesa update, I'm on AMD Radeon card, but I use radeon drivers, maybe will it work if I switch to amdgpu driver? What driver are you using?

maximbaz commented on 2018-04-07 19:46

When did it start to happen? I've seen mesa was updated recently, but I didn't notice any negative effect on my side.

digitalone commented on 2018-04-07 19:39

That's how I see videos on YouTube:

What's wrong? Something has changed?

Aaaa, I woke up to see the compilation of -4 finish only to realize that chromium has already received a -5 update during the night! Time to recompile once again.

However, @fsck_bieber the *.so files have not changed since -3 update, if -3 doesn't work for you, -4 and -5 will not work too. is too old, chromium has been compiled against - upgrade your system to get the chromium working.
