[Solved]High CPU Usage Watching Youtube

  • Anyone else having this issue?

    My Macbook Pro 13 inch 2017 (running 10.15.7) fans go crazy loud when I've been watching youtube lately. This seems to happen more when it's fullscreen.

    I've tried resetting SMC/PRAM and cleaning spotlight cache. Wondering if it's an opera issue. Youtube definitely shouldn't be taxing the CPU much at all

  • If it helps I only use these extensions:

    Ublock Origin, Enhancer for Youtube and Sponsor block.

    None have given me any issues before this week

  • So this ended up being a problem with my Macbook Pro 13 2017 specifically. I cleaned out the fans and it is back to working like normal with no fan noise during video watching and most web browsing!!
