General Discussion / CPU utilization while using site
« on: April 14, 2020, 12:10:54 pm »
I've been enjoying exploring this site for a few days but have discovered a utilization issue at times where I'd start getting audio dropouts / lag. This has corresponded to the CPU of my system being pinned at 100% (I have an older quad core Intel CPU so this is part of the issue). Turns out the component of the site that's chewing up all the CPU at these times is the embedded YouTube videos playing that seem to default to 1080p50. If I knock this down to 720p50 (which is still significantly higher the the original source resolution and given the window size is indistinguishable) then my CPU utilization drops significantly and the lag goes away.

Might I suggest either defaulting the resolution down a step or two (I'd think 480p would look exactly the same given the source material and windows size) or exposing to the user the ability to tweak the quality? I don't see an easy way to do this for embedded YouTube videos perhaps there is or maybe there's some setting I can change.

Thanks and love the site. I've been exploring the discrete audio channels provided and the content is amazing!
