Chromium does not use the GPU to decode videos
Status in Chromium Browser:
Status in chromium-browser package in Ubuntu:
The chromium team has done a great job to totally disable hardware
decoding on Linux.
Even ignoring the GPU blacklist does not enable GPU decoding.
How ever the patch is quite simple and it's already working using this

the corresponding patch is here :
that would be great if we could have this patch indefault Ubuntu
chromium build, this situation is really sad right now, google use
linux to make chromeOS so chromebook are really good at playing videos
but GNU/Linux chromium is slow at doing it.
