with these settings which config decodes video using gpu not CPU on my pop os linux
gfx.blacklist.vaapi - set to 2 or 3 or 4
media.ffmpeg.vaapi-drm-display.enabled - true
media.ffmpeg.vaapi.enabled - true
media.webrtc.hw.h264.enabled - set to true or false
What hardware (GPU, CPU), and application are you using? And what media file / sites are you attempting to use this with?
2600x an gtx 1660 super oc on pop os linux
It sounds like VA-API decoding may not work on an nvidia card - Firefox Hardware acceleration - Fedora Project Wiki. Certainly wasn’t supported the last time I looked into it many years ago.
It looks like there is an external translation layer but it will require building and manual installation. GitHub - elFarto/nvidia-vaapi-driver: A VA-API implemention using NVIDIA's NVDEC.
Are you having any decoding issues on your CPU? The 2600X should rip through even 4k content.
any decoding issues on your CPU?
no its just when im doing cpu heavy loads with multi tasking in other apps video playback goes to crap an i assume if the gpu took over more of that load in the times it would help
The only alternative I can suggest is to download the video (youtube-dl) and watch it in mpv or vlc, where you will have GPU decoding. Otherwise I will mention that a 5700X might be a good upgrade. Also how much RAM do you have? It’s possible too little is causing a performance issue.
