Slugish video playback

9 posts in this topic

I have problem with video playback on some pages, frame rate is something around 10-15fps whereas one CPU core is fully loaded (I'm using Intel i7). Example of such page is at aol.com - i get to it from the default Maxthon's home page :)

Please try this one for example

http://features.aol.com/video/who-will-win-big-2015-oscars

Note: it uses flash for playback.

Note: i've checked i'm having the latest version of flash according to this thread http://forum.maxthon.com/thread-13920-1-1.html

The same plays absolutely fine in Chrome - no 'slugishness' and CPU usage is around 3-5% (of all 8 cores), Maxthon takes 15% (this is more than 1 complete loaded CPU core).

Check if you have HW acceleration enabled for flash. Right click on the video > settings > first tab > make sure it's checked.

Video rendering correct here, but indeed a lot of CPU used. Probably because Maxthon no longer support GPU hardware acceleration.

With the 4.2.0.2400 version (the last who support GPU HA) usage of CPU is decreased about 20% with my configuration!:'(

I've hardware acceleration enabled in flash. The strange/tricky thing is that flash DO plays fine on some sites - for example here - http://www.veoh.com/watch/v65939317kW3madrZ.

That problem appears specifically on aol.com, but i remember i had same problem on some other sites (i can't remember exactly where).

I think it's depend to the supplementary software over Flash (Smartplayer for your first link). I already noticed as Maxthon consume more ressources when specific player is used (maybe because Maxthon is first programmed to use internal DLL Flash).
