Description Lorenzo Salvadore freebsd_committer 2019-08-25 10:52:37 UTC
On older hardwares or systems where hardware acceleration has not been configured correctly the browser shows videos with wrong colors.

This patch adds in pkg-message the suggestion to disable hardware acceleration through the --disable-gpu option.

Testing is needed to verify that the option works.

See bug #237277.

Thanks for reporting this.

However, there seem to be no '--disable-gpu' flag for qutebrowser:

qutebrowser: error: unrecognized arguments: --disable-gpu

Probably the right equivalent is 'qutebrowser --qt-flag disable-gpu', though I see no difference on my system. I guess I'll need to confirm with qutebrowser if that's the right way to disable hardware acceleration.

qutebrowser --qt-flag disable-gpu

Thanks for feeback.

I updated the patch by replacing --disable-gpu with the --qt-flag disable-gpu option.

adds qutebrowser option

Upstream configured that 'qt-flag disable-gpu' should work fine. Also updated with the info about configuration settings. Please take a look.
