In Edge Chromium Dev v74.1.96.24 I noticed that 1080p 60fps h.264/avc videos had framedrops that would not happen when playing those videos in Edge HTML or Internet Explorer 11. I did make sure that the codec is set to h.264/avc and that the video acceleration is on.

-These examples were from this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GeSR7pFSob4

-I tried it in both D3D9 and D3D11

-There were more framedrops when the videos were in fullscreen

-The frames dropped a lot more with SurfaceLayer Objects for Videos enabled

-I tried the same settings with Chrome Dev v75.0.3579.4 which gave similar results

-These are best case scenarios were the cursor is not moved which with that or a banner ad showing up, or a notification appearing would cause more framedrops

- With Edge HTML or Internet Explorer 11 there no framedrops even with moving the cursor

I noticed those issues when Youtube introduced hfr videos in 2015 and saw that there were framedrops in chrome when it did not happen with Internet Explorer 11 which is why I used that until Windows 10 and moved to EdgeHTML. I'm hoping that bringing this up early in the Edge Chromium devleopment would help to have optmizations happen sooner than later.

 

 

Enjoy the videos and music you love, upload original content, and share it all with friends, family, and the world on YouTube.

@382iou Here are a couple of more photos for system context.

The highest my GPU can decode is 1920*1080p 60fps h.264/AVC. Could it be the browser's Mojo Video Decoder?

as far as im aware this is an AMD driver issue with video processing

Well done on the write up! For me the Video Acceleration performance is also no where near as fluid / not working properly compared to EdgeHTML.

 

The performance difference is quite serious and might not be evident on higher end dev machines so it might be of benefit if a guru at the MS performance team kindly manages to compare EdgeHTML with EdgeChromium on lower tier and switchable laptop devices.

 

For me it even seems like EdgeChromium is falling back to software video decoding. (no matter the flag settings).

 

Chrome behaves the same way for me and I hope MS will be able to get around to improving the acceleration aspects in the future. They did mention working on ANGLE in one of the blog posts.

 

Laptop (iGPU: Intel HD 3000, dGPU: ATI 6xxx m) dGPU doesn't get used at all and iGPU doesn't seem to be accelerating video and the general feel is slow.

 

EdgeChromium also feels rather sluggish on the Surface 5 Pro i5 compared to EdgeHTML.

 

Hi @382iou, thank you for this detailed write up.  I will make sure that it gets to the right folks on the Edge team.

@382iou Thanks for reporting this issue with all the details. We have gone ahead and filed a bug and will start investigating it soon.

@Deleted @GurpreetV  I did see in edge://gpu under Driver Bug Workarounds and Problems Detected that it disabled both dxgi_zero_copy_video and nv12_dxgi_video because of AMD drivers, but that dosen't explain how that is not an issue for either Internet Explorer 11 or EdgeHTML.ECD-V.75.0.131.0-GPU-DBW-PD.pngEdge Chromium Dev Version 75.0.131.0 64bit GPU Drive Bug Workarounds and Problems Detected

@VonCrisp @GurpreetV The thing about ANGLE is when I disabled D3D11 Video Decoder, Media Internal would show that it was using D3D11 for DXVA.

- But if I set ANGLE to D3D9, Media Internal would show D3D9 for DXVA

- Though with D3D11 Video Decoder enabled, D3D9 for DXVA would show but also the error for D3D11 config

ECD-ANGLE=D3D9-D3D11VD=On.pngEdge Chromium Dev Version 75.0.131.0 64bit, ANGLE D3D9, D3D11 Video Decoder Enabled

- So when I did tests for D3D9 and D3D11 Video Acceleration I set the ANGLE grpahics backend to the corresponding D3D setting to make sure that was being used for DXVA

- And yes, setting ANGLE to D3D9 with D3D11 Video Decoder enabled and vice versa still resulted in framedrops

Honestly the whole hardware acceleration of Chrome/Chromium has been a bit of a mess for me and like you stated is totally tangled up and generally feels much slower than EdgeHTML.

 

Essentially this is why I always referred back to EdgeHTML on slower hardware.

 

Have there been any updates concerning this acceleration situation? Do you know if MS is looking at this?

I think since the last post on this thread is more than 6 months old and Edge insider gets a new feature and improvement every day, he should test that again.
I'm using Intel IGPU 630 inside Core i7 7700K,
Edge insider Canary takes full advantage of my GPU when watching videos. I tested it on YouTube with 8K 60 FPS videos and I have no frame drop at all, meanwhile my CPU usage was 50% and GPU usage was 80-90%,
Windows 10 and Graphic drivers latest versions.
