Comment 116 for bug 1424201

"The Quantum Flow (QF) initiative is a cross-component effort to improve user perceived responsiveness and performance."
Could you please triage this if it would meet your demands for 57 or 58?

Video hardware decoding is very desirable for Linux devices that:
* do not have a powerful CPU
* should be energy-efficient (laptops)
* want to fluently play 4K videos on YouTube while using the CPU for compiling Nightly. ;-)

There is new code from Chromium in comment 17 providing VAAPI hardware video decoding that could and should be shared, or not?
If Mozilla and Google both would fix bugs it would result in far better stability for all users. Would it be possible?
At least we have example code now.
