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.

Hi Kureta,

I am using Pacman on Manjaro. Tried both sudo pacman -Sc and sudo pacman -Scc, but still not work.

clean your aur cache and try again. if you're using yay, delete ~/.cache/yay/chromium-vaapi-bin

raphi011: as far as I understand, another good way to check if HW acceleration is working for you (besides looking at CPU load) is to play a video and go to chrome://media-internals to see the video decoder. MojoVideoDecoder for example is playing on GPU. I also invite you to visit our forum thread, once the forum comes back from maintenance :)

digitalone commented on 2019-10-27 14:53

If you set persistent flags, relative options are not showed under flag page, but they are enabled from command line. If hardware acceleration is enabled, you should notice a reduction in cpu usage during playback.

    Chromium with VA-API support to enable hardware acceleration, pre-compiled

Any ideas?

UPDATE After following this wiki: I now get Video Decode: Hardware accelerated in chrome://gpu, but chrome://flags still tells me Hardware-accelerated video decode, which is weird.

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

digitalone commented on 2019-10-14 22:51

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.

maximbaz commented on 2019-10-14 22:51

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! :)

freefreeno commented on 2019-10-14 22:47

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.
