    What videos did you test with? YouTube has started using AV1 for many of it's videos now, so unless you're running Tigerlake, those won't be hardware accelerated.

    sure, when ms opensources windows, redhat will contribute to it

    because most people use it. and maybe those people are redhat customers

    which means all those forks benefit from redhat work, right?

    Personally, in the "chrome:flags" tab, I activate the switches for "Override software rendering list" and "Hardware-accelerated video decode", then do the restart.

    With that said, my understanding is that the hardware acceleration should function for whatever codec your GPU had support for. Mine is h264 and h265. Websites like Vimeo and Daylymotion stream videos on h264 up to 4k/60fps. Youtube on the other hand, streams VP9 by default in desktop/laptop browsers. The problem is, only GPUs launched very recently support it. And even if they did, is not guaranteed that Firefox or Chrome support hardware acceleration of VP9 on Linux.

    With all that shenanigans aside, try to install the "h264fy" extension. It will force Youtube to stream the video to you in h264 codec (shown as "avc1" on the "statistics for nerds" video menu), so is a sure way to see if the acceleration is working for you. The downside is that YT only offer h264 streams up to 1080p/60fps. Here, in a old i7 3770k (stock), total CPU usage in System Monitor is around 10%, with individual active browser process around 3%. If you check CPU usage in Htop on the terminal, the values are much higher and look wrong, though.

    Because Chromium is the upstream for the most popular web browser and most of the runners up. Nothing about Chromium is forcing you to run the Google spyware.

    On a unrelated news, currently on Chrome-beta 88 video hardware acceleration is working just fine. Just flip those switches on About:Flags and you are good to go, easier than in Firefox.

    We have people working on Firefox as well (in the same team). So it’s as well as, not instead of.

    Very simple and pragmatic reason.
    Exactly: Red Hat has not interest in Chromium since they ship Firefox by default.
