Would be nice to be able to use image upscaling on video players, as an optional feature you could toggle for any individual video player.

Hi all,

This idea has been shared with our internal teams and we are going to be researching it a bit more as we explore next possible steps—check out @kkim's comment in this thread for more info 💪

Feel free to continue the conversation here and stay tuned for updates.

Thanks!

Microsoft Edge now offers/test support for upscaling videos with
- Nvidia and
- new: AMD
GPUs

see https://videocardz.com/newz/microsoft-introduces-edge-video-super-resolution-for-nvidia-and-amd-gpus

=> with this, So supporting all (modern) GPU types (discrete and integrated) from all vendors (Nvidia, AMD, Intel, see earlier post) in the near future looks reasonable.

We need Nvidia VSR support asap! I don't want to use data-stealer tracker-fest chrome bloatware.

FFmpeg already has support for this so this could be leveraged via that library, I'm sure.

FFmpeg has different types of upscaling, including machine-learning-based. The resulting upscaled image is quite impressive, actually (depending on configuration). This is on Linux, but I would guess that it has Windows-support as well? Not sure if it's as simple to implement on Windows.

GPU vendors probably have an driver API that can be leveraged too. Hardware-acceleration is quite important for laptop-users, for instance, to avoid fans spinning up, device heating up and using excess power just to watch YouTube or Netflix or anything self-hosted for that matter through the browser.

 

Anyway, I don't think this idea is far-fetched at all and as far as I know there are already different libraries that can easily be leveraged by FireFox (as it already uses FFmpeg).

Definitely exited for a feature like this (if it is possible). I hold nothing against high performance, opensource, quality improvement! 😍

Would also love to see integration with Nvidia's upscaling.

Seems unfair to be left out of the chromium market monopoly

It would be better if it could support AMD as EDGE does.
