**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.

Thanks for the hint wzrdtales, updated ;)

Just a little friendly hint.

Downloading via Github raw is really slow on binary files. Use Github releases instead here, this will allow to download binary files with fullspeed.

What specifically do you have in mind braderhart? I admit I haven't tried Foxboron/devtools-repro on this package, as it takes enormously huge time to compile. But I would say, if extra/chromium package is reproducible, this one will 100% be reproducible as well.

Is there a way to create reproducible builds for this?

Thanks as always.

Extra tip: if you have a AMD Radeon Card that belong to Sea Islands or Southern Islands Family, DO NOT enable AMDGPU driver, it works but its support to those families is experimental. Hardware video decoding (inside and outside browser, mpv/VLC/Kodi also) was working in previous Mesa versions, but it's glitched in current version.

Stick to Radeon driver.

The issue is resolved.

Is the issue resolved? Can I update the system and chromium-vaapi-bin without breaking nothing? Thanks.

Running binary from August 10, under chrome://gpu shows video decode as software only. Is it just me or someone else has same? Thanks

Should add "patch" to the build dependencies. Was setting up a build server for this, and I had to manually install patch.

They are in base-devel group, it is assumed that everyone making packages from PKGBUILDs has that group installed.

By the way, check out this:
