Please describe your issue below:

Frame drops when watching YouTube (Chromium). It’s the case even for 720p60 and everything higher has higher frame drop rate, 4k60 is impossible to watch at all. CPU utilization is close to 90-100%. How to fix this? Looks like there is no hardware acceleration.

There is no hardware decoding under browser, we tested 1080p30hz resolution should also be fine but higher then it may drop frame.

Thanks for your clarification. Any plans to add video decoding in browser? What needs to be done in order to make this work?
