Video tearing still there even though I already made ~/.config/chromium-flags.conf

I also already create ~/.config/chromium-flags.conf with the contents being :


Yet when I play a video and check Inspect element and check media it shows this :

Decoder name : FFmpegVideoDecoder
Hardware decoder : false
Encoder name : No encoder
Decrypting demuxer : false

Note :

  • I already have h264ify
  • I pretty much follow the guide made by the Manjaro team member, Yochanan

Please guide me if there’s a mistake on my par.

How do you know if hardware acceleration is working on your system or not? Is there any output on running vainfo? Have you seen Hardware video acceleration - ArchWiki? Also see similar post:

Aah why so many! These work for me (taken from arch bbs):


oh yeah I forgot vainfo. Here

vainfo: VA-API version: 1.13 (libva 2.14.0)
vainfo: Driver version: Intel i965 driver for Intel(R) Ivybridge Mobile - 2.4.1
vainfo: Supported profile and entrypoints

VAProfileMPEG2Simple : VAEntrypointEncSlice
VAProfileMPEG2Main : VAEntrypointVLD
VAProfileMPEG2Main : VAEntrypointEncSlice
VAProfileH264ConstrainedBaseline: VAEntrypointVLD
VAProfileH264ConstrainedBaseline: VAEntrypointEncSlice
VAProfileH264Main : VAEntrypointVLD

VAProfileVC1Simple : VAEntrypointVLD
VAProfileVC1Main : VAEntrypointVLD
VAProfileVC1Advanced : VAEntrypointVLD
VAProfileNone : VAEntrypointVideoProc
VAProfileJPEGBaseline : VAEntrypointVLD

also I trim ~/.config/chromium-flags.conf a bit


I pretty much give up on this issue. I just downgrade Chromium to 97 enable Hardware Accelerated Video Decoding through chrome://flags and remove ~/.config/chromium-flags.conf as it conflicts with the flags. And funny enough, that solves the issue pretty much, no more horizontal screen tearing on my test video.

Screw you Google for removing that flag in the newest version.
