Fuck Flash. It can't die soon enough.

Youtube has been playing so poorly for me of late. Low FPS. I did a quick check of it using Chrome's FPS counter and noticed it was playing all my videos at around 15fps average.

So I did some searching. My laptop played videos fine and both had the current Chrome versions, flash player, and GPU drivers. So I re-installed Flash on the computer....same results...shitty fps on youtube (but not on my games). Finally, my last shot in the dark was HTML5. I checked and noticed my laptop was playing videos in HTML5 and my PC was playing them with Adobe.

I thought I had requested HTML5 when applicable a LONG time ago on youtube, so I double checked. If you go here, you can see if Youtube will play videos on HTML5 if applicable for you and opt in to force Youtube to play videos in HTML5 if they can. I opted back in and viola! No more shitty fps.

So here's the comparison:



Seriously, eat a dick Flash. I hope you die soon.

Watch this video especially the parts between 3:32 and 5:19. Every shot should be silky-smooth but HTML 5 or Flash I get the same exact results. Youtube doesn't like smooth motion it seems.

It wasn't silky smooth, but it was a steady ~30fps with only 1 dropped frame.

Also, 'Drive' and 'The Dark Knight' did have excellent posters. Good choice.

Well that's good because Youtube cannot exceed 30fps.

What about those Youtube Ultra HD videos at 60fps? Is it all lies?!

At least they look really nice.

The only way you can get 60fps playback on Youtube at ANY framerate is to have HTML5 video enabled and choose 2x playback speed.
