These builds require PipeWire >= 0.3.1 which is available at the FFmpeg 4 PPA (has FFmpeg 4.4.x, latest libva, vulkan-loader, plus more, and is also a dependency of many other PPAs at this Launchpad site) and the Multimedia PPA (ppa:savoury1/multimedia). Recommended steps to successfully install:

  sudo add-apt-repository ppa:savoury1/ffmpeg4
  sudo add-apt-repository ppa:savoury1/chromium
  sudo apt-get update
  sudo apt-get install chromium-browser

Updated DRM (2.4.114), GLVND (1.5.0), and Mesa (22.2.4) are at the display PPA. For these upgrades add the next command to the top of the list above:

  sudo add-apt-repository ppa:savoury1/display

Note that the display PPA makes changes to critical parts of the system so as always make sure to do a full backup first, before doing the upgrades!
