Chromium codecs for HTML5 - MSE & WebM VP9

Postby tententh » 2018-05-04 01:08

Hello,
I have installed chromium, but unable to play videos at 1440p+ resolution at 60fps on youtube. There are no problems as these with 'Firefox ESR' browser which comes preinstalled. Going to youtube.com/html5 on chromium shows there is a codec issue?
Screenshot below showing there is something with MSE & WebM VP9:

System: Intel 6260u, Stretch 9.4, Chromium 66.

i have seen similar reports quite a lot recently.
what have YOU done to tackle the issue?
oversized screenshots do not replace actual research (and i mean debian research, not clicking youtube links).

also, wouldn't it be much more comfortable to download the videos first, then watch them on $MEDIA_PLAYER?

Go to the Chromium website. In the Linux download area there are examples of how to install various codecs
