Youtube h.264 (MP4) hardware acceleration not working..
I have a laptop with:
Intel GMA 4500MHD
Core 2 Duo @ 2.93GHz (Penryn)
4GB DDR2 RAM
Opera version 38 (latest) with h264ify extension
Now, I have been trying to get hardware acceleration to work on YouTube videos but it hasn't worked for me... Accelerating a local video works on MPC-HC (the video is a downloaded YouTube video with the same exact format and codec - MPEG 4). Furthermore, H.264 (MP4) YouTube acceleration has been working on Mozilla Firefox 47 and I didn't have to force it to work.

Supported features from opera://gpu
video_decoder WMFVideoDecoder --- From opera://media-internals
Supports Hardware H264 Decoding Yes --- According to Firefox
GPU Accelerated Windows 1/1 Direct3D 11 (OMTC) --- According to Firefox
Could there be a way to force enable Direct3D 11 on Opera since I have the disable_d3d11 flag?
I really like Opera and I don't wish to drop it over this issue but can someone please help me? ^-^
have you tried installing a separate codec pack as MPC-HC comes with it's own built in hence why it probably works Opera only uses codecs available on the system
I use Windows 7 Home Premium Service Pack 1 64-bit (Build 7601)
I have tried H264 video on YouTube on both Chrome and Vivaldi (tried the 64-bit version of Vivaldi aswell).
Both Chrome and Vivaldi were the latest versions..
Firefox still works without a problem and my CPU usage is noticably lower since there is video acceleration.
Oh, there's no way to get around it then?
Oh okay, I guess I'll try new versions of Opera when they come out in hope of it working. Is there any way to open a bug report to Chromium maybe?
