Description Misha Ramendik 2020-11-05 14:17:06 UTC
Description of problem:

I had chromium from EPEL-testing installed on RHEL 8.3.

Chromium repeatedly crashed when trying to join a Google Meet meeting.

Removing chromium, disabling epel-testing, and reinstalling chromium from epel fixed the issue.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

86.0.4240.111 (Developer Build) Fedora Project (64-bit)

How reproducible:

Appears to be 100% but I did not check on any other machine.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have RHEL 8.3 and chromium 86.0.4240.111 (epel-testing as of right now)
2. Try to join a Google Meet meeting 

Actual results:

chromium crashes

Expected results:

meeting appears

Check and see if you have hardware accelerated video decoding on. Try turning that off and seeing if the issue goes away:


It would also be useful to know if you are able to reproduce this in the current stable version of Google Chrome (either with hardware accelerated video decode enabled or disabled).

it should be fixed in latest chromium update
