    I used to use Chrome as my default/daily browser but recently I've switched to IE 11 on my Windows 8.1 pc. I've noticed that 60 fps youtube videos stutters when played by Chrome but runs buttery smooth on IE 11. My chrome is updated, i reinstalled chrome for the problem to be fixed but no help. Turning hardware acceleration on & off didnt help. Clearing the history, temp, cache files didnt help. Disabling extensions didnt help. It seems like nothing is fixing this issue.

    My pc has a intel pentium dual core e5700 processor, amd radeon hd 7750 gpu & 4gb 1333 ddr3 ram. Im pretty sure my hardware is alright since IE can play it well. But Im just curious why this is happening in chrome, any ideas?

    60fps videos only run on chrome. I'm sorry but your hardware cannot handle it I'm afraid. Please remember you need to be running on the video on at least 720p for 60fps

    No the IE on win 8.1 can run it too. You can see for yourself. And trust me, when a video is running at 60 fps i can tell it. I can feel the difference.

    In Windows only chrome can play 60fps video.

    Your PC is weak to handle it.

    The article says appears to not work in anything but Chrome, yet "It does work in Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox (Nightly) and Internet Explorer (11) but not in Opera or Chromium for example." according to this article: YouTube supports 60 fps videos now - gHacks Tech News

    I've also viewed YouTube videos at 60fps within IE. It does work.

    Thought I'd show image of it turned on:

    I tried in my Laptop but I haven't be able to play 60fps in IE and it works only in Chrome.

    and I haven't face any problem with Chrome as OP. It's buttery smooth in my low specs lappy.
    I think OP have install some addons in chrome which may be the reason for that.

    It may be some addon, however I do suspect that his hardware just isn't up to snuff to play with Chrome. OP you can try DMC's suggestion and try and disable addons to see if it will work. Use task manager to see whether there is maximum usage of your hardware, check CPU/Memory and report back.

    As for the above post. You can show images of it not working in IE however there is more evidence it's not restricted to only Chrome. Including the OP. There might be something wrong with your installation.

    Try disabling your IDM integration in IE.

    Please do try and play a video while keeping an eye on your computers resources, that way we possibly can tell where the issue may lie.

    While playing 60fps vids in Chrome my CPU usage stays above 70%! While playing it in IE my CPU usage stays below 16%! So my conclusion is Chrome sucks! Why cant it handle 60fps vids in low end pcs while IE can?? Screw chrome! I'm happy with IE!

    Anyways thanx for the tips guys, really appreciate it.

    If it's using 70%, that would certainly suggest at least 1 of your cores is fully loaded and it's the source of your issue.

    However I do think there is some things you can try. You could make sure that Flash is using hardware acceleration, or you could disable and try to use HTML5. See whether the CPU usage goes down.

    You are running Internet Explorer 11? You have tried resetting back to factory defaults and a "reinstall"? There is something wrong with your system if it's not working for you.

    Yes,
    And I'll try to reinstall and post update here.

    One question for you
    Are you also experiencing same problem as OP?

    No but my system is significantly more powerful. It does use a little more CPU, but not to the same extent as the OP. Which is why I suggested the OP test whether hardware acceleration was in use when using Chrome.

    When an application is designed for a huge number of PCs with all different kinds of specifications such issues do eventually occur.

    This may be your experience but I've found even on my Core i5 powered laptop Internet Explorer is significantly slower than Chrome.

    I'm pretty sure the most determined to ensure the best performance right now is the Google Chrome team. If you have any issues with playing 60 FPS video, please report it and I'm sure it'll be fixed soon.

    Maybe I'll do that. But in my pc chrome is just messed up! It even opens slower than IE! It takes about 3-5secs to open whereas IE opens within a blink of an eye! I guess formatting windows might fix the performance issue but I'm not using chrome for youtube anymore; unless I upgrade my hardware.

    Which again is your singular experience.

    Yes hardware acceleration is on in the chrome settings.
    Are you using Flash, or HTML5 for YouTube video playback?
