YouTube videos in Opera load CPU at ~90%, while the same video in IE loadsjust 30%

  • Hi everyone!
    About a half a year I am noticing that viewing YouTube videos in Opera loads my CPU at 90-100%. The picture twitches and I notice the whole PC is hardly plays the video.
    The same video at the same youtube quality in Internet Explorer doesn't cause any freezes, twitches and requires just 30% CPU.
    I have scratched the web, many people notice this as well as me, but it seems nobody know what to do with it. I tried to turn on/off several functions located at opera://flags (ex. #ignore-gpu-blacklist) but didn't notice any improvements.
    My system is:
    Win 7 Home Basic 64 bit
    AMD 2 X2 3.00 Ghz
    RAM 4 Gb
    NVidia GTS 450
    This is not really great, but quite enough for viewing videos. Please help
