Running manjaro for over a week, I came across this. When I try to play 1080p videos in VLC, the CPU usage for VLC alone rises to 25%. Worse it rises to around 60%(H264) on playing 4K videos. The processor supports Hardware Level h265 decoder. I have enabled Hardware Acceleration in VLC, but the issue isn’t gone. I installed drivers from the manjaro settings manager.
Edit: I have tried various methods and still couldn’t figure out exactly what is causing the problem? or Is it normal for an i3 - 6100 to spike to 75%(HEVC) on VLC when playing a 4k motion graphic video with a bitrate of 2500kbps?
Also I want to know if any of you guys have properly configured an Skylake Integrated Graphics for optimal performance?
If then what are the steps in doing so?
