Following the examples of Fedora and openSUSE, the Manjaro Linux team have decided to disable proprietary codecs in the Mesa package. This change disables hardware acceleration for some video codecs on some video cards. "Mesa is now at 22.2.4. [It] includes a notable change which disables hardware acceleration for proprietary video codecs (most commonly H.264 and H.265) when using the Mesa drivers stack. Open video codecs (VP8, VP9, AV1 - based on your hardware capabilities) are unaffected and can still be hardware-accelerated out of the box. This change mainly affects AMD graphics cards. (Intel GPUs don't use Mesa for video acceleration, NVIDIA cards use the proprietary driver, and Mesa video acceleration mostly doesn't work properly with the open source Nouveau driver). You can read more about hardware video acceleration here and about that topic in general here."
