Windows 10? Or some other OS?

Windows 10

I know this might sound like it may not work, but its worth a shot to run Windows Update, Bios Update or a driver update for the video card.

Have you tried Firefox?

Ok, I have been having this issue with my HTPC....When playing youtube videos

Any ideas?

Stop playing Youtube videos.  Problem solved.  



Edge indeed probably has performance advantages over some of the other browsers. I am a web developer, programmer and sys admin. So what i'm about to say is by first hand experience.

Of all the browsers Edge, and all previous IE versions are the WORST to have to account for. By far Edge !@#$% sucks with conforming to standards. Microsoft has continually half assed its implementation of features so badly that my teams have had to continually write IE/Edge specific code along side the standard code for the other browsers. The results have usually been that other browser users get a clean intended experience and IE/Edge users get a clunky so so experience. I don't know if this is enough to express how much I hate IE/Edge. I cannot wait for the next version of Microsoft browser that abandons their made up crap rendering engine for chromium.

I think Edge as a browser is maybe the worst thing I've used in years -- borderline unusable --, but I can't deny that it does offer by far the best Netflix and HBO Now playback of all the browsers I've tried.


Its a reboot of the IE browser.

Going from start.

A lot of sites and plugins arent 100% working yet because there's no support it.

It'll get better in a few years assuming it doesnt end up like Internet explorer.

Ok...I did one and two.... problem still persists.

Then I played the video and open task manager..... at this point I had a total of 7 tabs open, 4 of which were youtube tabs, two rest era and two VGC.

The strange thing is that I am seeing like 23 open sinatances in chrome.... all of them are basically not doing anything so I don' know where they came from and what they are even doing there. But the one instance that is playing the video is using only like 6% CPU and 30% GPU and around 500MB of RAM.

I really can't get it..... And I have ero extensions installed. And practically no software installed either.


23 is unusual....well it may be because you have multiple tabs open.

I have one tab opened (Youtube) and have 8-9 instances of Google Chrome open.

I have 3 tabs open on Mozilla Firefox (Youtube, Facebook and VGC) - and have 8-9 instances.

I hate browsers sometimes lol

Is it just that one video or do you have other videos that are affected?

The large number if instances is because chrome opens a thread literally for everything.  Iframe for google analytics? Thread.  Extension? Thread. Tab? Thread.  A page that has a bunch of adds in iframes playing videos will bog down a moderately good PC.  This is why using an adblocker like ublock origin and then unblocking sites that you are comfortable with is key to a good chrome experience.

haha... did all that already. As I said it's a new computer. Onl apps I have on it outside what it came with is VLC, PLex and Chrome. All drivers are up to date... there was even an update for the bios which I have installed.



Edge isn't even better than Internet Explorer.

Yup I stopped using Chrome too and use Opera.
