Hello I'm using the dizzy branch and built Chromium using the meta-browser repository. chrome://gpu reports:

 

Graphics Feature Status

Canvas: Hardware accelerated

Flash: Hardware accelerated

Flash Stage3D: Hardware accelerated

Flash Stage3D Baseline profile: Hardware accelerated

Compositing: Hardware accelerated

Rasterization: Hardware accelerated

Threaded Rasterization: Enabled

Video Decode: Hardware accelerated

Video Encode: Hardware accelerated

WebGL: Hardware accelerated

 

But when I try to play an mp4 video, it lags severely, doesn't seem to be using hw decoding. I just open the file on disk using file:// URI.

 

What could be the reason? gstreamer plays the same video smoothly. How to play the same video in Chromium hw accelerated?
