  • Hardware accelerated video decoding up to 4K 60 FPS
  • Game controllers (currently limited to those for which Chrome has a built-in mapping, like Xbox and DualShock controllers)

Not working:

  • A few settings are missing
  • Error handling needs work

Changes from Alpha 3:

  • UI improvements around loading and streaming
  • Added software decoding fallback when hardware decoder is unavailable
