I did some research and discovered 2 main things I should try:
- Enabling hardware acceleration
- Using H264ify for video decoding
Once I finally figured out how to run the browser with hardware acceleration, it didn't seem to make any difference. In fact it may have been a little worse. and I can't seem to use H264ify on any domain other than youtube.com.
My question is, Is this pi capable of running this smoothly in 1080p? or am I chasing a dead end? If it is possible, what else can I do to help improve the issue?
