AMDGPU MESA VA driver regressed since MESA 20.1.x for Ryzen. Only X11 session with --use-gl=desktop works. Wayland or --use-gl=egl caused AMDGPU to crash and unable to recover.
Bug had been filed, but issue likes this will take long time to resolve if ever. AMD is not very proactive in Linux driver quality, otherwise this is a very serious defect for user-space Va-API to crash the whole system.
https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/mesa/mesa/-/issues/3656

Anyway, since it didn't crash on you, this is good news for you. Perhaps you aren't using Radeon Vega graphics. You should use chromium-vaapi instead. The log showed a known Wayland bug that was patched in AUR chromium-vaapi together with MESA package with ANGLE_sync_control_rate EGL extension.

then is only need to time to come to official repos.
I am using raven ridge man.
And I have another pc with amd graphics and I can not be more happy..
I had nvidias on my hand, intel and for the last amd. And I prefer amd and intel for support and amd for support and gaming. I am not agree with you on amd quality drivers.

latest chromium needs some flags to enable ozone under wayland, you will be using xwayland without those flags I think.

the error is with these flags I think. Have you read that I use one flag to enabble egl?

Chromium vaapi on wayland/ozone is not implemented. Please check my earlier comment.

I have working chromium vaapi on xwayland by passing LIBVA_DRIVER_NAME=radeonsi as env.

I will be testing tomorrow because I am going to sleep now. I'll let you know if that helps but I think it won't since chromium is detecting the correct vaapi drivers and it's failing in the moment of playing. ( may be some regression since I am using manjaro day to day not arch)

Only some videos trigger this problem, mainly reddit ones, is it a problem with reddit or with my setup? my gpu is an rx 570.

This is an example video that triggers the problem.

Re: chromium: hardware video acceleration with VA-API

Chromium 86 works fine.

Re: chromium: hardware video acceleration with VA-API

On my Broadwell notebook with native wayland(sway with xwayland disabled), while no hardware video decode yet, lastest chromium finally boots and runs butter smooth.
So I suppose Electron apps may also work in native wayland in the near future? And then wayland can finally works as my main work envrionment.

Re: chromium: hardware video acceleration with VA-API

I'll dump some information here regarding some of the recent questions:
- VA-API support for Ozone/Wayland is still WIP:
  - Tracking issue: https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/is … id=1116701
  - WIP patchset (just found this, the previous one was deleted, not sure if this one's already usable): https://chromium-review.googlesource.co … /+/2592787
- VA-API via XWayland:
  - Not sure if this still works. AFAIK it should still work with --use-gl=egl and Chromium+Mesa patches (but it wasn't fun to maintain so I stopped using that setup).
- Ozone/Wayland support in Electron (off-topic):
  - Electron 12+ will support it (still experimental of course): https://github.com/electron/electron/pull/26022
  - But it'll likely take quite some time until apps switch to that version (and e.g. RTC_USE_PIPEWIRE is still disabled)

Also: Many thanks to Ted Meyer (use_vaapi will default to true in M88+, we got a Linux flag to enable/disable it at runtime, and a few other nice fixes and improvements along the way) and Maksim Sisov (for his work on Ozone and working on VA-API support for Ozone/Wayland).

Re: chromium: hardware video acceleration with VA-API

Hello,

looks like everything discussed here, is not (anymore?) possible if you are using Nvidia driver version 390 or lower. The MojoVideoDecoder built into Chromium simply does not work with that driver, no matter what you try to configure using libva-vdpau-driver-chromium or the flags.

If my memory serves me right, this should have been possible with previous Chromium builds.

Does anybody know since when MojoVideoDecoder ceased working with the legacy Nvidia drivers?

Thank you very much in advance.

Re: chromium: hardware video acceleration with VA-API

I use nvidia-390xx on GT730 (GK208) and H.264 always works for me. The GPU does not support VP9.
Frankly, no one really care. If it works, good. If it doesn't, you can't complain, or those who care step in and provide solutions.

That is the harsh reality, or use Windows.

That's why I have h264ify installed. It is supposed to force YouTube into delivering H.264 instead of VP9, if I am not completely mistaken.

Yes but as soon as HW acceleration is enabled, I get output similar to the following trying to playback a video: https://i.imgur.com/06yxJqA.png

I have to disable accelerated video decode in order to be able to watch a video.

Re: chromium: hardware video acceleration with VA-API

I'd link the artifacts to the WM compositor or the selectively erased fact that this is actually a manjaro installation.
I can even play videos w/ ANGLE on the 390xx driver (and VP9 oc. isn't accelerated anyway - so you may want to look at the video stats what format yt streams when you get the artifacts and whether there's even a chance that this is GPU decoded at all)

Indeed, I was told that Arch does not have the Nvidia driver 390 for kernels >= 5.9 anymore. So it looks like that good old 550 GTX cannot be used with Arch sad

Plus: Version info in Chromium says Version 87.0.4280.88 (Offizieller Build) Arch Linux (64-Bit)

The WM compositor sound like an interesting hint as I am using xfce, and according to the wiki, the xfwm compositor may cause video tearing https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Xfwm.

Unfortunately, disabling display compositing in xfwm4-tweaks-settings does not seem to help.

Reboot after that change did not help, either.

It also doesn't matter that Manjaro shovels arch packages on your disk.
Manjaro is not archlinux the same way I don't magically become a car by tacking wheels to my hands and feet.

But in better news, the video is avc1 (ie. h.264) and should indeed be accelerated.

@DAC324 Your NVIDIA GPU acceleration is busted. This is likely caused by Linux 5.9.x and you had failed to update or use nvidia-390xx-dkms.

Re: chromium: hardware video acceleration with VA-API

He's using manjaro because he "was told that Arch does not have the Nvidia driver 390 for kernels >= 5.9".
The driver says "nvidia" so the kernel module should™ be in place, but he's using the wrong libGL (?)

@DAC324, If that's not a misrepresentation in chromium, chromium should be the least of your problems.
Post

glxinfo
pacman -Qs '(nvidia|linux)'

and your xorg log.

You should not even be able to run glxgears and I'm surprised that chromium does't outright crash on you.
In any event, that's a good illustration why manjaro isn't supported. We don't know what you've installed and configured and you apparently don't either.

Guys, if you have issues in Chromium, start using Firefox, hardware acceleration is working good there.
