"GST_DEBUG=va*:6 epiphany": log of YT playback

WebKitGTK 2.42.0 happily plays VAAPI-accelerated video on any website in any HW-supported format, except on YouTube (tested with vp9 and av1). Tested with GNOME Web and Surf, on GNOME 45 in wayland and X11 sessions. If I remove the libraries for the GStreamer av1/vpx software decoders, playback on YT stops working altogether.

For reference, this testcase: https://tools.woolyss.com/html5-audio-video-tester/?u=woolyss.com/f/spring-vp9-vorbis.webm works flawlessly. (verified via intel_gpu_top)

Epiphany 44.0 (installed via flatpak) is not affected, but Epiphany.Devel 45.0 is. Firefox 117.0 works.


other software:
GStreamer 1.22.6
Mesa 23.2-rc3
