So this article describes how to utilize your gpu to decode videos in chromium.
I checked the entries like described in the arch wiki.
I’m using a nvidia gtx 1060.
The vdpau driver is located under /usr/lib64/dri/ but the default path of LIBVA_DRIVER links to /usr/lib/dri/ - I then changed the environment var in my zshconfig.
I want to get “gpuVideoDecoder” under chrome://media-internals as in the linked post described. But even after all the steps and searching the state still persists, chromium seems to be using software rendering and doesn’t utilizes the gpu for video decoding.
I have no idea what is missing or if it’s even possible to get this working with an nvidia gpu.
So my question is, is there anyone with a working setup, having a nvidia gpu?
Any suggestions what I could have missed are appreciated as well.
