Hardware Acceleration is working on Google Chrome!

reddit

I know Google Chrome isn't popular in Linux masses. But hey it works. I am on Manjaro. Downloaded Google Chrome using aur. Turned on this flags in chrome://flags

ignore-gpu-blocklist
enable-gpu-rasterization
enable-accelerated-video-decode

Installed enhanced-264ify extension. https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/enhanced-h264ify/omkfmpieigblcllmkgbflkikinpkodlk

I can see "MojoVideoDecoder" on chrome://media-internals

00:00:09.406 kVideoDecoderName" MojoVideoDecoder"

Also, I installed intel-gpu-tools
sudo pacman -S intel-gpu-tools

and running sudo intel_gpu_top
I can see the Video/0 moving.

So, Google team just enabled Hardware Acceleration without much news?
