    The problem is not the evil, evil, SJW boogey(wo)men as you'd like to believe, but the problem is that Google and Mozilla just point their fingers to the assortment of video decode API's and drivers on Linux like they can't pick one or more and receive bug reports about them, even hidden behind a white/blacklist flag. They don't even try.

    Your name should be changed to braindead_pederson. Neither FF or chromium have managed to get video decode accel on Linux right.

    I just compiled v72 and tried Picture-In-Picture on a few YouTube and Prime videos and it worked fine. I don't have a Netflix streaming account anymore, just DVD/Blu-ray, so I don't know about that.

    But even though it works, it seems to be of limited usefulness right now. It has to stay on top, and if you browse from the launch point in the browser it disconnects.

    I expect with more work they'll make it a fully floating window that can be anywhere on any level, and stay connected when browsing to other pages. Then it will be awesome!

    Your analogy is totally incorrect.

    Lower WebRender CPU usage please, my Thinkpad T430S turns into space heater when using youtube even though I use hardware decoding and force H264 playback with h264ify.
    Apart from the not-yet-existing hardware decoding on Linux, the Webrender issue for this is AFAIK https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1579235

    That's nice but still no hardware acceleration.

    How you can use hardware decoding if Firefox on Linux still not support it? Or maybe you taking on layers?
