I’m not experiencing this on other browsers

hi @ShineWhine,

hardware acceleration was not enabled and i tried turning all extentions off but it didn’t seem to work Unfortunately

Can you try enabling Hardware Acceleration and see if there is any difference in performance? Additionally, do you see this same behavior in other browsers (Chrome, chromium, opera, vivaldi, edge)?

some youtube videos are not 4k, the video itself should have 4k recording inorder to you to watch youutbe in 4k videos. And those youtube videos get more views fast
