Has anyone successfully managed to run hardware accelerated video in a browser?

I'm writing a simple browser base application that requires a video attract loop and I can't get video to run successfully under chromium. MP4 files don't play at all while ogg and webm playback is very choppy. Chromium indicates that video acceleration is enabled. I am testing on a sabresd board using NXP's latest 4.14.78_1.0.0 release


When I play the same videos with gst-play-1.0, video playback of all three formats is smooth.


Carrying out searches I can find plenty people having problems with hardware accelerated video under chromium but there doesn't appear to be any one having successfully implemented this. Has anyone actually achieved smooth playback of video in chromium and if so do you have any suggestions on how I can get it working?
