Iridium Browser unable to open media playback

after the latest Manjaro update I am unable to play videos in Iridium Browser …
Although they do work correctly in Firefox …

In the video window I simply get the generic Video Error #102630
This kind of error points to several causes including lack of hardware video aceleration …

Having an amdgpu driver though …How do I start to debug this ?

Maybe start with system info

inxi -Fazy

Maybe also the packages in question ,ex

pacman -Qs chromium

And any configuration options, flags, etc.

calling pacman -Qs Iridium

local/iridium-rpm 119.0-1
    Iridium browser - rhel/centos build altered for arch

After some more software fiddling I removed the Iridium browser and replaced it by the AUR ungoogled-chromium-bin browser …

It works as expected …

Nonetheless If now I try to re-install Iridium it gives me a direct conflict with ungoogled-chromium …
Why is that ?

Marking this as solved though…
Thank you for the fast reply .
