You've provided no details that matter and nothing you've tried either.  So the response you're getting is: Dunno.

Re: Cant play any video on CHromium or chrome

Theres a lot more to "video" than simply not being able to play video. If you illustrated an example much better suggestions would be possible. The only hunch I have due to the perceived ubiquity of the problem is: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php … 2#p1650542 (don't know what the paths on Chrome are, adjust accordingly)

Re: Cant play any video on CHromium or chrome

So did you try what I posted? Do you not get any output in the terminal? For a quick test, as detailed in that thread, if you can playback in a incognito window it's almost guaranteed to be a cache issue.

Re: Cant play any video on CHromium or chrome

Install a compositor to fix tearing, or if you don't care about gaming performance enable the composition pipeline.: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/NV … en_tearing

For the actual problem, identify the location of the ShaderCaches (instead of ~/.config/chromium it's likely ~/.config/google-chrome or similar) and remove them.

Re: Cant play any video on CHromium or chrome

Do you not get any usable information from a terminal? And *what exactly* did you remove? I mentioned three folders in my reply, did you identify the corresponding paths for google chrome?

Re: Cant play any video on CHromium or chrome

That will not have done anything if your are using google chrome, it should however work again in chromium. Do you use a custom ffmpeg or similar video related utility? Post terminal output of a chrome /google-chrome run and  a

pacman -Qm

Re: Cant play any video on CHromium or chrome

Google-chrome is presently at version 66 and Firefox-dev(eloper) at 61. It appears OP is either not updating, doing unsupported partial updates, and/or did not install Arch per the Wiki.  Or not running Archlinux at all.

regards

EDIT: Did not take waste the time to verify any other packages.

Re: Cant play any video on CHromium or chrome

Those are foreign packages, it doesn't necessarily point to an issue if they are outdated.

But this might still be a good hint either way, are you fully updated? Do you use any nonstandard chromium flags?

Re: Cant play any video on CHromium or chrome

Then how did you install those "foreign" packages? There is no "firefox-dev" in the AUR, but there is "firefox-developer" and it is at ver. 61. And, again, Google-chrome at ver. 66. If only the two packages that I bothered checking are outdated, what about all of the 50-some other packages that you listed in your system, OP?

Video playback--good video playback--has always been a touchy thing in Linux browsers, the redheaded stepchild you might say, and we've only really had decent playback for the past couple of years. A broken system is one way to ensure it doesn't work well.

Straight up questions, OP. How did you install Archlinux? Are you running Archlinux or a derivative?

Thursday regards

Re: Cant play any video on CHromium or chrome

You are doing something very peculiar, as said countless times already post the output of a chromium terminal run, as well as after reproduction of the issue

pacman -Qs nvidia
pacman -Qs chromium
dmesg
glxinfo | grep OpenGL
#From a chromium window, the upper part before the big table with vendor info starts: chrome://gpu

Re: Cant play any video on CHromium or chrome

Enable GPU acceleration in chromium settings.

And since it sounds form another thread you made like you have worse problems, what do you get from a

pacman -Qkk
loginctl show-session $XDG_SESSION_ID
