      It was OK before Ozone.
      Now it's gone and all videos playing with software decoder !

        It's been a while since hardware accelerated video decoding stopped working when using Ozone (regardless of the display protocol). They promoted it to stable nonetheless. Unbelivable.

          It needs to be switched on manually, add the --enable-features=VaapiVideoDecoder option.

            Ozone X11 has been working for years, and they only drop the legacy x11 code now.

            But that's not enough. I want them to drop all x11 code, including Ozone's x11 code and focus only on the Wayland portion.

              I'm sure you, Microsoft and Apple have that dream in common. But it ain't gonna happen kiddos! Not this decade

                Wayland isn't working for everyone yet...

                  That's exactly what doesn't work.

                    This is great news!
                    Is Ozone also a prerequisite for native Wayland support in Electron apps?
