I've enabled cuvid and nvidia and submitted to Factory but
unfortunately the 42.2 update version remains without it. The above
bug doesn't affect browsers if the full version of ffmpeg is installed
they only attempt to use the cuvid codec if there isn't an
alternative. The other bug concerning the full ffmpeg version which
only affected users with nvidia hardware was fixed in
Best regards
