    How to check:
    * Install h264ify
    * play some [youtube] video
    * open chrome://media-internals/
    When VAAPI works "kVideoDecoderName" returns "MojoVideoDecoder" (not "VpxVideoDecoder" or "FFmpegVideoDecoder")

    Unfortunately we still need to patch/rebuild Chromium...
    I will check, however this option in the flags, it was not present in previous versions of Chrome, so maybe something is moving.
    In Chromium that option has always been present, at least on openSUSE where it is enabled by default.

    ... for that matter then you shouldn't talk about Nvidia, while there is an article a day and many other things.
    By the way, Chrome at the browser level is based on open source technologies, Chromium itself is an open source project.

    The benchmarks are open source, the apps don't have to be. Also, the tagline doesn't say that those 3 things are the only things that are allowed/discussed on this site, it just says that the focus is on those 3 things, i.e. that's the majority of stuff you will find here, but not necessarily all.

    Do you have uMatrix running while incognito? That causes a lot of grief for me.
    Btw, for those of you who don't already know, uMatrix is unmaintained. The extension was archived on githu https://github.com/gorhill/uMatrix

    I still use it myself, but I do expect it to break in the medium-term. Such a pity.

    Software codecs are continuously fuzzed, they're the least of my worries to be honest. Hardware ones are a lot harder to exploit on the other hand.
