Process Tamer

Okay, I downloaded the Process Tamer, so how does this work. My computer is still speeding up when I watch videos.

stop watching videos...

I don't know what changes were made, but nowadays most of us have this CPU -eating video problem. One can hope it's because of the improved, modern video quality is needing more power, than the poor videos of yesterday. If Process Tamer tamed the video playing process, your video would not play smoothly. Maybe we just need a more powerful computer?

Good points Curt.
If the OP is watching video online though, I suspect they're screwed, no matter how powerful their machine is.
tbh I havent even considered Process Tamer there: instead I dream about the ideal browser that doesnt hog my cpu and gpu when watching a simple video

last night I tried Internet Explorer (on windows 7), and it did very well with streaming video -- no hogging of two cores as in PaleMoon (one for the browser, one for the plugin container).
