This is all over the web so are you starting another discussion here? We have other browsers so why not use something else till this is sorted?
I have turned on the GUP/HW assist functions on Chrome browser already. It seems to work with Netflix video. However, the YouTube video seems to bypass the HW assist. Can someone point out how to fix that?
I have a 55Mbps Internet access. On Netflix video, it plays smoothly. The CPU loading is about 50% and the GPU loading is about 45%. So it seems fine.
On the other hand, YouTube video would freeze momentarily from time to time. The CPU loading is near 99% most of the time and the GPU loading is at 0% most of the time.
So I am wondering if there is a setting on YouTube that needs to turn on HW assist?
Hopefully someone would comment on it. I have the latest version (V35) of chrome and it seems to do a good job on offloading Netflix video acceleration to the GPU card. I get about 45% of load level on the GPU playing Netflix on Chrome. If I play the same Netflix video on Firefox, the GPU only gets 10% load. So apparently, Chrome is more aggressive in offloading video to GPU than Firefox.
