    The idea to not enable VA-API on X11 is simply moronic. Considering they don't implement it themselves, but rely on ffmpeg, which I don't recall needing either Wayland or X11, I can't see a reason for them to discriminate against it.

      I guess the reason is simple, in Wayland it works well, on Xorg there are problems, I see it when on Xorg I use Chromium with VA-API, there are some problems, with some videos

          RedHat is paying for the developer's time, so RedHat gets to decide what the developer will work on. There's no technical obstacle to X support, what's needed is someone to write the code. Using words like "moronic" and "discrimination" here, that's... well, moronic.

          And no, they don't rely on ffmpeg. As has been said already (and needs to be repeated again and again in every thread about in-browser video playback), the issue isn't decoding the video, it's integrating it into the webpage. That's not ffmpeg's job. That's the job of the browser-internal webpage compositor, Mozilla calls theirs Webrender.

                Are you going to do it?

                      19 people support trolling and GNOME and KDE's death.

                      When you like 144Hz, you like trolling.
                      When you like 144Hz, you like killing the other desktops and achieving the evil monopoly GNOME is!
                      A freaking man-made disaster with no freedom!

                      Ugh, or did you create 19 accounts to like yourself...?
