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!

Foreigncon: since webrtc patch comes from extra/chromium, I chatted with foutrelis who maintains it, the current patch is actually based on it already, but only the relevant bits were taken.

xuanruiqi: I use whatever GPU is integrated into Intel Core i7-7820HQ.

Foreigncon: yeah I've tried --disable-gpu-driver-workarounds, doesn't help :( And GPU acceleration definitely kicks in, because when I disable acceleration via chrome://flags, I get no lags on 4k video, but my laptop begins to sound like an airplane. And it's not like a lag, but more like "missing frames" I'd say, for example sound cuts for a moment every now and then... By the way, thanks for the ping about webrtc patch, I'll look into it.

@maximbaz Have you tried it using --disable-gpu-driver-workarounds flag on a clean profile?

BTW chromium-vaapi's webrtc missing header patch is wrong. Please use this

@maximbaz: hm, what GPU do you have? I have a GeForce and use the NVIDIA drivers, so no native VA-API support.

VP8/9 is supported, but whether it can be used depends on your hardware. By the way, I noticed today that with our new MojoVideoDecoder a 4k VP9 video lags just a little bit, while it doesn't in the previous build. CPU usage is approximately the same, and going just a little down in the resolution removes the lags - still annoying...

xuanruiqi commented on 2019-02-05 19:35

Does VP8/9 decoding not work at all, or would it just not use GPU acceleration?

Working with latest amdgpu+mesa RX580. With --use-gl=egl no need for allow_rgb_configs workaround anymore.

@kureta Thanks.
