Active Video on 2nd Monitor Lags but on Main Screens works fine



  • When I put a Youtube/Twitch Vid on my 2nd Screen it begins to lag/buffer, on main monitor its's fine.
    If the Video is not the active Tab it works fine
    Other Browser works fine

    It's not the Internet and I have a beefy gaming pc

    Example Vid https://youtu.be/xJsda3PtFuw

    Edit: If I put a Youtube Vid on my 2nd and main it gets a really laggy experience



  • I cannot detect any difference on primary or secondary monitors. I opened the link in a new window on my primary monitor and dragged it to the secondary monitor.


    Specs: AMD A10-6800K, 8 Gb on Win 10 64-bit • Snapshot 1.12.955.14 (64-bit)



  • On a Standalone Vivaldi I get the same
    It's so strange I can watch 2 videos simultan on the main screen without any problem
    if i put 2 vids on my 2nd screen its laggy
    if I put 1 vid on each screen its a complete meltdown

    Tested with new Standalone



  • I am also using a standalone installation.

    My primary monitor is 1600 x 1200 portrait, my secondary monitor is 1280 x 1024. I don't have a fast graphics card and hardware acceleration is disabled.

    @wet-rat Do your two monitors perhaps use two different cards?



  • hello wet-rat
    is there a cabling adapter in this mix. ? might be that vivaldi is passing a higher quality signal than the adapter is capable. have you trialed different cable type? say of the vga, hdmi, dvi, dp?



  • Windows 10 Creators has some problems with frame dropping and slow performance on some newer hardware.

    Perhaps you can disable "Use animation" at vivaldi://settings/appearance/ in Vivaldi
