    I run the enhanced-h264ify extension which does just that, so it is h264 for me, also for AV1 streams.

    I would consider Gentoo to be downstream, still. But good to know that they do carry these patches.
    Gentoo are downstream from the Chromium project, but they're upstream from my overlay...

    I'd double check the video you are playing is in the correct format, my laptop doesn't HW decode VP9 so most youtube videos aren't HW accelerated without h264ify

    Equally some newer videos are AV1 on youtube which isn't HW accelerated on my AMD Raven system, I modified h264ify on there to not pick the AV1 streams

    You might be lucky to have a distro which integrates the VA-API patches. I am currently running the official Chrome package on PopOS - and in about:gpu it lies to me that Video decode is enabled, but if you check with about:media-internals there is still the software decoder active (it should be: MojoVideodecoder).

    brent , no I haven't run with Webrender, as it is not the default and my point would still stand that I want to see this functionality by default everywhere on Linux. That is sadly still not a thing in 2020.

    It is really promising that not only is all the new hardware in the second half of 2020 supporting AV1 hardware decoding but we also see comprehensive Linux support for all of them.

    More AV1 support is a good thing. This really does nothing for me but I hope it helps some one out.

    I'm not having any issues. I'm using the latest Firefox, and just checked Chrome.

    It's working fine here in Chromium, VP9 too

    At the current moment, the response times are back to normal.

    With Intel Gen12 Xe-LP / Tiger Lake supporting AV1 accelerated decoding, Intel has provided this support via their open-source media stack on Linux that is then exposed via the Video Acceleration API (VA-API). Intel has now landed their patches for supporting VA-API AV1 decode with FFmpeg...
