Video shuttering and lagging when playing 2+ videos in different windows/tabs

  • In example, having one youtube video playing in one window, then opening another one (youtube, facebook, twitter...) in another.

    Both are playing with random stalling and poorly.

    Opening another video make things worse.

    Opening each video using other browsers (and Vivaldi), one video per browser, all seems to be ok.

    Opening all videos in any other browser different than Vivaldi, also ok.

    My setup: 2 monitors via hdmi on AMD Radeon HD 6700 Series

    Hi, work fine with really low end hardware.
    Youtube videos on two tabs or two windows.
    Check chrome://settings/?search=hard
    If hardware acceleration is enabled disable it and vice versa.
    Btw. you can disable background apps by the way.

    Opensuse Leap 42.3 x86_64
    CPU Intel T4200 4 GB
    GPU Intel GN 965
    xf86-video-intel 2.99.917-6.1
    KDE Plasma 5.8.7
    Vivaldi 1.14.1038.3 (Official Build) snapshot (64-bit)

    Cheers, mib

    Does Disabling Intel HD graphics help?
    Does Settings → Appearance → Disable Use of Animation help?

    What is shown on internal page vivaldi://gpu in section Graphics Feature Status? Anything red or orange?
