View Full Version : Player and CPU Usage

When using full screen mode, the video and audio become choppy and task manager reports cpu as maxed out. Neither of the bottom two boxes in settings are checked.

Yes, there is a reason for this. The forum timed out and puked my login eating the more detailed post.

You are not alone and it affects the FLV player released 18 October by the author of Applian's player as well as VLC and others. The only player unaffected I have found is the beta of an AIR based Adobe multimedia player.

It's the new AAC audio streams rolled out early November after Flash 10. Actually just began with this past week's "Hi-res" hulu episodes of some poular shows. (Extra compression HE AAC sans headers needed for synch saves them few a MB each in download times like a gazillion downloads.)

Sorry my bad english.
