Hey guys, I just recently noticed that if I run Youtube videos at 1080p, the video clip shows a lot of frame skipping and lagging (even when I let the video finish downloading before playing it). I have tried clearing all cache, history, etc. Both Chrome and Firefox lags. I don't see an option in IE 8 to set Youtube video quality (it sucks). In addition, I noticed that the CPU is heavily utilized at 80-90% when I play the video clip, in addition, I tried both using the HD4550 and Intel HD graphics to play the video (it seems as if Youtube is not offloading the rendering work to the graphics card), with both drivers updated to the most current (Catalyst 10.3). I did try playing with the original drivers as well. Last point, I tried running the same video with my desktop which has a Core 2 Quad 9650 and I noticed that CPU usage levels were at 35-40% as well. I'm starting to think it's the poor offloading of work to the video card by Youtube. I'm wondering if anyone know anyway to optimize the video streaming on Youtube or other sites that utilize flash for streaming (flash is updated to the most current). Any feedback would be helpful. Thanks. *Forgot to add, the video I was trying to play was the Iron Man 2 trailer in 1080p. *Forgot again, my configuration is the SU9600 with HD4550.
