Good news, after updating bin package, it's working now on AMD/ATI Radeon (without libva-vdpau-driver-chromium). Thank you. :)

Done, thanks ;) If anyone discovers other optdepends that are needed to enable HW acceleration on other cards, don't hesitate to ping me.

@ozmartian I hope it's working for you too... @maximbaz you only need it for nvidia I guess so I would only set it to optional with a description like: "libva-vdpau-driver-chromium: Make HW acceleration work for nvidia cards"

Definitely not mandatory dependency as it works fine for me without it, but if you say it is necessary for getting Nvidia card to work (correct?), I would obviously not oppose this :) Is there another package I need to add to optdepends besides libva-vdpau-driver-chromium, e.g. something for AMD?

@Terence giving that a go now... thanks in advance!

@maximbaz should libva-vdpau-driver-chromium be added as a mandatory and/or optional dependency?

Good work.

@maximbaz @digitalone @ozmartian I got it to work!! I just had to rebuild libva-vdpau-driver-chromium!

@Terence I'm afraid I'm not the right person to ask this question, I merely maintain the PKGBUILD that applies the official patch with @xsmile's adjustments to make it work for stable chromium, I don't know how the patch works in details and how to add support for Nvidia.

@Terence Try to downgrade mesa packages. In other times that worked for ATI. I won't downgrade because I have enough of Google and its browser. VP9 HD Youtube videos on my system work very well in mpv even without hardware decoding while in Chromium they always struttering...

@maximbaz how can we help to make it work for Nvidia?
