When I watch a youtube video, especially in HD, the browser I'm using (chrome) will use in excess of 200% of the CPU. This causes the video to stutter and also makes my laptop very hot. Is it normal for it to use this much CPU? Also, it's even worse when I watch it fullscreen.
I'm on a Dell Studio XPS1645 with a first generation i7 and a ATI radeonHD 4670 graphics card (With the latest proprietary drivers). Running Ubuntu 12.04 (but the same thing happens with earlier versions). Also I'm using the HTML5 version of youtube as flash performs even worse..
Can anyone help me resolve this issue or at least tell me if this is normal?
