    Flash player uses 50 percent of CPU


    Hello

    I have installed the newest web browsers: Opera, Firefox and IE. I have the lastest version of Adobe Flash Player.
    When I want to watch any video on Youtube - it's almost impossible, cause it jams. Even when I down it to 360p.
    It's about 50 percent of CPU usage, sometimes even more.
    I tried to install older version of Flash Player - no effects.

    Does this happen using all 3 browsers?
    Have you tried disabling hardware acceleration in the affected browser(s) or flash player (or both)?
    Have you tried downloading a video and viewing it offline for CPU utilization comparison?

    1. Yes.
    2. Yes (but no in flash player, cause I don't know how can I do that).
    3. Yes. No problems.

    Any sign of a heat-related issue? If so, perform a general cleaning. If not, I think I'll bow out at this point and ask someone else to respond with a few fresh ideas. Good luck and sorry I couldn't help you.

    Some system specs and internet speed would be helpful, youtube become pretty demanding.
