This currently does not work with chromium >= 87.

@gardotd426: I misunderstood, settle down.

Also, enhanced-h264ify provides no real benefit over h264ify in this situation and is irrelevant to this discussion anyway, considering this is the AUR page for libva-vdpau-driver-vp9-git, and we're talking about vp9.

@yochanmarqos why are you asking me if I've used libva-vdpau-driver-chromium while literally directly responding to the sentence where I say libva-vdpau-driver-chromium works if you use h264ify...

yochananmarqos commented on 2020-12-22 23:23

@gardotd426: Have you tried libva-vdpau-driver-chromium? Is there any difference? Also, you should be using enhanced-h264ify, not the original.

This no longer works with Nvidia on Chromium starting in v87.

It works in <=86, but from 87+ it breaks. VP9 videos won't play at all (you get an error).

Using libva-vdpau-driver-chromium with h264ify will allow you to force h264 for some videos and get some hw acceleration, but you're limited to 1080p and it doesn't work a lot of the time, so if this driver could get fixed that would be fantastic.

This is an established/confirmed issue.

libva is now only a makedepend with libva-vdpau-driver 0.7.4-5.

@DDoSolitary Thanks, added. @Strykar I'm just packaging this so I don't know. It says it supports chromium only in the project page.

Missing makedepends git

Strykar commented on 2020-08-12 00:33

Would it be possible to get this to work with Arch's community google-chrome-stable package or is this Chromium only?
