Chromium hardware video decoding

Hello,

I would like to launch a project using Chromium to play videos and have an interface using HTML using the Jetson’s GPU. (Jetson Nano)

However, I read that Chromium was not able to use hardware acceleration on this platform.

Is it possible to enable it?

Is this wiki be valid for the Jetson Nano?
(https://elinux.org/Tegra/Downstream_SW/Linux4Tegra/WebBrowsers/Hardware_Accelerated_Video_Decoding)

If hardware decoding isn’t available, would the video be laggy?

How much of the CPU would be used to decode a 1080p@30fps video?
Could other features such as CSS transitions be hardware accelerated?

It would seems like a waste of resources not using the GPU for video decoding.

If the board was not designed for such applications, is there a piece of hardware that would be more adequate for this?

Thank you very much

Hi,
It is not supported. Please refer to

Sorry, I may have misunderstood your questions. But yesterday I tested Jetson Nano with Armbian (Ubuntu with DE XFCE), including the chrom browser for full-screen YouTube video playback. The result can be read here.
