Vivaldi hardware accelerated except video decode

I configured Vivaldi as I like it.
Enabled required flags in .desktop file and also enabled some flags in vivaldi://flags
vivaldi://gpu says, hardware acceleration is enabled but without video decoding.

flags I have set:
Exec=vivaldi-stable --use-gl=egl --ignore-gpu-blocklist --disable-gpu-driver-bug-workarounds --enable-features=VaapiVideoDecoder --enable-features=UseOzonePlatform --ozone-platform=wayland --force-device-scale-factor=1.25 %U

I’m using Manjaro Sway edition, so it’s wayland.

Which video card / driver?

EDIT: Hybrid AMD / Nvidia?

Ah right. I’m using amdgpu drivers and nouveau. Currently used GPU is AMD

OpenGL renderer string: AMD RENOIR (DRM 3.42.0, 5.14.0-0-MANJARO, LLVM 12.0.1)

I noticed you didn’t mention if you enabled the following:



“Enable an ‘enable’ option.” → I wish developers would hire non-devs to name their settings. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Yup, thats what you need to do. Just enable hardware accelerated video decode in chrome://flags.

Oh. Unfortunately I don’t see this flag in chrome://flags :confused:
Please take a look:

I know the flag was added in Chromium 91+, so maybe when Vivaldi’s Chromium-base catches up? Can’t really say for sure. :man_shrugging:

Is it in the unavailable tab?


Maybe it will be available with next update, with chromium 93, I don’t know :confused:

We got it guys! :slight_smile:

Haha, update just came out :smiley:

I have now problem with tiny cursor :roll_eyes: but I will open new thread :stuck_out_tongue:
