I occasionally get lag or a stutter on videos when using GX. I don't have this issue with Chrome, however. What I've noticed is that if you watch Youtube videos with anything major running in the background (usually RuneScape for me), that's when this happens and I can usually fix it by restarting the browser.
However, I did find a thread on the main Opera forum that addresses this issue and it seemed to help me, so maybe it'll help you too?
Also, regarding Opera's built-in ad blocker, I use standard Opera on my laptop and I just run the built-in blocker (for the sake of performance) and I notice that it doesn't block as many ads as I wish it would. I use GX on my PC and I ended up installing my favorite ad blocker (Adguard) on it because it always worked exceptionally well on previous browsers. Thankfully, it works just as well on GX.
And as I had thought I had done before I posted. Mistakes happen but some people don't admit them like I just did and did you ever do what I asked and actually compare as that would have been an immediate signal that I had missed something. I guess you don't want to admit that you didn't compare or you would have mentioned it. I have been using Opera since back into the early versions of it and I have occassionely used the various versions of the forum and found the other users very helpful but I don't think I will bother in future. Have a good day and be happy that you have given me good reason to not come back.
How to solve the problem.
First, you turn off Ad Blocker and Tracker Blocker, but just only to the website youtube.com
Finally, install a new extension like https://addons.opera.com/es/extensions/details/ublock/
Problem solved! Hope this help

Opera does not display YouTube videos embedded on smf forums using [youtube]...[/youtube] tags.
@heaven We confirm the issue and currently looking into it. Stay tuned!
@leocg None of that worked for me, which prompted me to create a user account, back up tabs and history, and reinstall the whole browser from scratch. That solved the problem. Thanks for all your suggestions, everyone!
I confirm that the links from YouTube with a redirect begin to loop
@azorian So when you type www.youtube.com, you are automatically redirected to m.youtube.com?
Already tried clening (youtube) cookies and cache? What about resetting flags and settings?
Do you use any extensions? Alrady tried with them disabled? What about a clean profile?
@Tagloff said in High CPU [Video]:
@zalex108 Other user's and myself are encountering this problem, but it's not really the GPU either.
It's the in-browser audio playback for everyone, and some are finding it's also the animated icons on the tabs, for anything, anywhere.
It seems to be with any browser based off Chrome/Chromium, which Opera is based off.
Boot up youtube then -mute- it and you can see a dramatic cut in CPU & GPU usage.
It's been getting worse, and people have been reporting the problem for months, and it's tied into the 'tab icon is constantly loading' issue somehow.
Who thought it was a good idea to remove the stop-loading page function from a browser?
On my side:
Mute is unnecessary, just hover the tab to change to a static audio icon.
Vivaldi works fine.
