Re: chromium: hardware video acceleration with VA-API

I noticed a similar memory leak issue as well as high cpu usage with the Xorg process when the flag is enabled.

You can go star https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/is … id=1467689 to hopefully raise its priority.

Re: chromium: hardware video acceleration with VA-API

And it's broken again.

I'm so incredibly tired of trying to fix this issue every month or so. I'm almost anxious to run system updates cause breaking HW accelerated decoding appears to be very common.

Starting from version 116, hardware acceleration doesn't work with AMD gpus. Use version 115 from now on. The tldr is that they removed the legacy vaapi (2) that used to partially work on AMD gpus (1). The new vaapi decoder just doesn't work with AMD gpus, it fails with an error (1). There's an open issue that doesn't get any attention from devs (3).

Thank you so much. I will roll back to said version and hope it'll eventually get fixed.

Actually they also removed it for older Intel GPUs as well. (ivybridge for example). It's not looking good I'm afraid lol. At least there's still Firefox (for now.)

Re: chromium: hardware video acceleration with VA-API

In case it helps someone: Not AMD but Intel Kaby Lake iGPU, X11, package ungoogled-chromium 117.0.5938.62, kernel 6.1.52, intel-media-driver 23.3.1-1, patched libva 2.20.0-1 (sed -i "s/va_DRI3_Get/va_DRI2_Get/g" ./libva/va/x11/va_x11.c) with --enable-features=VaapiVideoDecodeLinuxGL in chromium-flags.conf, intel_gpu_top still shows VAAPI hardware decoder is active.

Chromium proper has a nasty zero-click zero-day exploit basically every week now. Running an old 115 is hazardous.

Re: chromium: hardware video acceleration with VA-API

Well it reports VAAPI works, but is the memory leak fixed ? Because in 116/117, my issue isn't getting VAAPI working, it's that it leaks memory ...

Re: chromium: hardware video acceleration with VA-API

So basically, VAAPI doesn't work at all on AMD and Nvidia, and VAAPI works on Intel but causes huge memory leaks. I'm now confident that no one in the Chromium team actually uses their browser because this bugs shouldn't exist.
This comment from the removal of the old (working!) VAAPI commit is just insulting

Now that we have completed the migration to the new VaapiVideoDecoder, the legacy VaapiVideoDecodeAccelerator class and related code can be removed.

Yeah, good migration, bravo the testing team if there's any...

I have to stay on 115 despite being dangerous because of the lack of security updates...

i checked in normal chrome and didnt work in 117, i dont think does it matter about i am using LIBVA_DRI3_DISABLE=1 instead because you are also disabling dri3 with modifing libva, maybe kernel does difference because i am on regular 6.5.3 kernel instead 6.1 lts but i don't think so
i have uhd620 in 8350u laptop, in old chrome 115 it works well but i am looking to switch to new anyways and keep using firefox for yt or something instead because chrome without hardware acceleration on videos is no-go for me because cpu will be hogged up and temps + battery usage will raise by a lot

Friendly reminder that there're dedicated youtube clients shameless plug but of course also https://aur.archlinux.org/packages?O=0&K=youtube-viewer and that mpv plays youtube (and a bunch of other services) fine if you've yt-dlp installed.

I rebased my (rather hacky) patch to get VaapiVideoDecoder to work on AMD - it now applies to Chromium 116: https://gist.github.com/thubble/235806c … 9173d24d9f

It works on my RX 6800, verified using chrome://media-internals/ - VaapiVideoDecoder is being used.

I'm running on (X)Wayland with KDE Plasma 5.27, with the following Chromium flags (forcing XWayland - native Wayland will not work with VAAPI as far as I know). I know some of these are unnecessary or redundant/duplicate, but I can't be bothered testing to see which are actually required:

--ozone-platform=x11 --enable-features=CanvasOopRasterization,VaapiVideoDecoder,UseChromeOSDirectVideoDecoder,VaapiIgnoreDriverChecks,PlatformHEVCDecoderSupport,Vulkan,DefaultANGLEVulkan,VulkanFromANGLE --use-cmd-decoder=passthrough --use-gl=angle --use-angle=vulkan --use-vulkan=native --ignore-gpu-blocklist --enable-zero-copy --enable-gpu-rasterization --enable-native-gpu-memory-buffers --enable-gpu-memory-buffer-video-frames

Now updated for Chromium 117: https://gist.github.com/thubble/235806c … 9173d24d9f

It looks like there's some very recent changes for VAAPI multiplanar format support, so maybe official AMD VAAPI support is coming? https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/is … id=1471111

Re: chromium: hardware video acceleration with VA-API

I'm having issues with hardware acceleration. I set it up once a few years ago and got it to work when playing YouTube videos in Chromium, but now it doesn't anymore. I've gone through the wiki and followed most of the instructions, as well as gone through some guides, but still nothing. I've tried using enhanced-h264ify to block AV1 and set most of the flags mentioned in the wiki and elsewhere that should be appropriate for my system. I'm sure I'm doing something wrong, but don't know what.

This is my current `~/chromium-flags.conf`:

--ignore-gpu-blocklist
--enable-gpu-rasterization
--enable-zero-copy
--disable-gpu-driver-bug-workarounds
--enable-features=VaapiVideoDecoder
--enable-features=VaapiIgnoreDriverChecks
--disable-features=UseChromeOSDirectVideoDecoder
--use-gl=egl

And the output of `vainfo`:

It works, and its accelerated, tested with intel_gpu_top.
