Greetings. I will begin by listing some pertinent system specs:
Windows 7 x64 Professional - Fully updated
Google Chrome 19.0.1084.56 m
20mbps Down/2mbps Up Cable Connection
8GB System RAM
Intel Core i7 CPU 3.06ghz
2x ATI 6870 Video Cards
Basically here is the issue. Whenever I am watching a stream or a VOD on my second monitor [which is an Insigia 32" HDTV] I notice framerate drops in both streams and VODs. This issue is also not unique to Twitch/Justin.tv and does happen with GOMTV vods as well, however I was not able to reproduce this on YouTube. The issue only occurs when I am viewing a different browser tab that is not the tab with the video in it. If the video is playing on my second monitor and the tab is in focus on my main monitor, framerates are fine. Then I switch tabs, and the framerate drops. Is this happening for anyone else? Thanks to any who reply.
