IMPORTANT: VA-API patch has been integrated into extra/chromium! We will remove this package at some point, and we will lose the comments section, so we need a new place to continue the discussions.

I created a new thread on BBS, please let's move all discussions there already now!

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:

chrome://flags/#load-media-router-component-extension

and restart Chromium.

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

I see. It seems Manjaro doesn’t use the latest arch updates as the package manager only shows 2.3.0-1 version of libva-intel-driver. Even when I use pacman -Syu in terminal it says everything is up to date. I guess I will have to wait till manjaro gets up to speed with the changes and use old 71v chromium till then. Kinda new to linux (hence Manjaro, and not arch) so this all goes a bit over my head :)

I will report back with result of hw acceleration after I can use the new version. Thanks again

@biet1234 Hold on a sec. You're using Manjaro right? Do they have the latest update from Arch? I wonder. If not, then chromium needs a rebuild against libva 2.3 for you to work.

kureta commented on 2019-02-01 15:34

biet1234 please let me know whether or not it works after the update.

biet1234 commented on 2019-02-01 15:11

Oh how embarrassing. I should have been able to figure that out :-( Manjaro package manager isn't notifying me there is an update. Time to figure out how to force update!

Sorry for wasting your time and thanks for your help!

@biet1234

Here is the error "This build of Chromium requires VA-API version 1.4, system version: 1.3"

You should update your system. I think libva might have an update that you have not installed.

@Foreigncon It's KDE plasma
