User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Linux; Android 6.0.1; Nexus 7 Build/MMB29K) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/47.0.2526.83 Safari/537.36 Steps to reproduce: Watch any 720p or 1080p video at 60fps on YouTube. Actual results: CPU shoots to 100% usage and the video becomes choppy. Expected results: CPU usage should be much lower and the video should be smooth. In comparison playing the same video in Edge results in 20 - 50% CPU usage and 100% smooth playback. PS: The same issue affects GFycat as well at 60fps, but once again Edge runs them perfectly.
I posted from my Nexus 7 but the issue is on my Yoga 2 10" Windows 10 tablet.
Steve, thanks for reporting this problem. On which Firefox version do you see 100% CPU usage? Is this a new problem? Can you please copy/paste your Firefox Troubleshooting Information from about:support into this bug? https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/use-troubleshooting-information-page-fix-firefox
Can you also look at YouTube's stats for Nerds (available from right-click menu) and tell us the codec that is being used.
