Firefox video performance


There is not going to be much decided in this post, rather looking to vent.

After spending about 7 hours yesterday looking into performance problems with Firefox I can’t but help be dismayed that webm and ogg playback take up so much CPU time.

In my tests it is currently using 100% of one of my cores, but what is worse is that it effects anything else going on at the same time, meaning that I have to be really careful running loops, creating JavaScript objects and generally doing anything else on the same page.

The sooner they implement support for native operating systems video support the better.
