I have a Samsung Ativ Lite 9 that comes with an AMD A6-1450 APU. I´m having a problem playing HD Videos on Youtube (HTML5) with high cpu usage and stuttering under Google Chrome (it uses vp9 codec). When I try to play the same video on Internet Explorer it runs smooth and with low cpu usage (it uses H.264 AVC codec). Should my APU handle vp9?

Ps. I found in some forums that the problem can be with vp9 that it doesn´t use SSSE3 instructions.

YouTube HTML5 video is/was defective for a long time. I have an old E-450 and it would play EVERYTHING very smooth (YouTube full HD flash video, Bluray, etc) and YouTube's HTML 5 video was garbage on chrome.


recently I noticed that whenever I go to YouTube, all that is gone (without doing anything), and videos are silk smooth. PS: those problems where ALSO true for my Intel i5 haswell ;-)

just very bad html5 coding ...
