    Phoronix: Video Acceleration Takes The Backseat On Chrome For Linux

    Due to notorious Linux graphics drivers, Google developers working on Chrome/Chromium aren't looking to enable hardware video acceleration by default anytime soon. The problem ultimately comes down to poor Linux graphics drivers...

    without gpu aceleration, I suffer tearing with flash pepper, I am really disappointed.

      Meanwhile, Nvidia has been shipping a stable VDPAU implementation for many years, and the Mesa VDPAU implementation for Radeon and Nouveau graphics is shaping up nicely as well. Why does Google only care about Intel's proprietary VA-API?

          GPU Drivers

          How is it possible? Intel drivers is good enough for playing games like L4D or Portal 2 or support new webgl google maps. VDPAU is supported under (linux not very friendly) flash. Isn't VAAPI supported in media players like XMBC or VLC?
          So why Chrome devs speaks about bad drivers?

            Mozilla managed to do this with whitelisits. Not sure why Chrome team can not.

              So the problems are with drivers that are open?......... something they can help tackle?


              Seems these google guys are just Lazy or don't use linux as main platform.

              Now that Valve is getting intel and amd to improve things a lot ,they should hire someone to look into the video stuff.

              Anyway does chromeOS has acceleration of some kind ? I would think they would enable it at least for their own platform

                We don't ship code we consider to be permanently 'experimental' or 'beta'
                Google? Really?

                  Because Intel has been the only so far needing it, software acceleration (specially on now-considered old Intel CPUs/Chipsets) has been bad to barely playable since a long time before (on Windows too).

                  They don't think that much on the low end GPUs that need it anyway.
