Opera consumes CPU

  • Hello friends, first I tell them that I use google translator, I say this because of some writing error.
    Ok, my query is because Opera has been consuming me a lot of CPU for months, on YouTube you must disable the blocker and others and so on entering YouTube you go up to 100% and go down to 80% and again go up to 100 & go down to 60% and if I put full screen it totally locks the image not the sound, before it did not happen, I added more memory and now I have 4Gb of ram but memory is always stable 47% or 55%, this in the task manager, wanted know where I could download another opera from the old 12 or a little more and test if it improves, I downloaded the portable but it consumes 100%, I wanted to review the functions with ccleaner but in the ccleaner opera it does not appear either (it's normal or my ccleaner is wrong?).
    I hope you understand what I wrote.
    Thanks to everyone, I love opera and that's why I miss using it as before !!!!!

    Sorry my inglish is bad, what is kinna, and version- 1507 - 1511 - 1607 - 1703 - 1709 - 1803 but of what exactly? Sorry for my ignorance

    The other thing you asked, did I answer well?

  • @papaluis1 the versions are win 10 versions but no worries ya got 8.1 windows..

    bad news - that chipset nVIDIA nForce 6100-430, AMD Hammer (gpu MCP61P) - can not do hardware acceleration of decoding H.264, VC-1 and MPEG-2 video..

    but the 6150 430 could..

    Details found here

    about all ya can do is this..

    go to Opera Settings > Advanced Settings > Browser - Scroll down under system, check box (Use Hardware Acceleration when available)

    If Opera is running with Hardware acceleration activated, see if disabling could help the issue.. then restart browser..

  • @papaluis1 this might help..

    this extension will make YouTube stream H.264 videos.. the Extension is called - H264ify - found here

    Note - To make this work in opera ya will need this chrome extension first.. its called - Install Chrome Extensions - found here

  • @nvmjustagirl Thanks, I already had it without the hardware acceleration, I still have to see how to disable it in the CPU since I do not have the option to disable the hardware acceleration in the CPU, I think that would help, but your contribution of extension helped me a lot, so thanks for that.
    Likewise, as you say, my Nvidia is the one that is behind and in that the definitive solution is to advance the technology, but also thank you very much because there is really a change, I will see how long your solution will continue to help me.
    Thank you, thank you and more thanks from my heart!
