[RESPONDED] Hardware video Decoding Ryzen 7840U APU

While we wait for our Ryzen 7080 Laptops I thought I would put a question out there.

Theoretically how easy or difficult would it be to provide chrome & firefox hardware video decoding for the latest Ryzen 7840U APUs.

I ask this question as there are alot of posts about VAAPI support being absent in chrome, and people have tried to apply patches to get the support.

Would this be different for GPU vs APU, or it is the same thing?

I have no knowledge about how The open source Radeon graphics driver works.

Use Firefox.

Firefox has VAAPI enabled by default. Chrome can use VAAPI, but it’s unstable and causes a bunch of issues in my experience.



This is the best course.
