  1. Watching streams on Twitch.tv is causing major performance issues while gaming.


    The situation is that I run a dual-monitor setup, where I like to play a game on monitor A while watching a stream on Twitch.tv with monitor B. This has been working fine for me with no issues up until 2 or 3 weeks ago after a mandatory Windows 10 update was installed. Now when I am watching a stream on monitor B I get frequent massive framerate dips every 3-5 seconds or so.



    I'm quite convinced that something to do with the Twitch player is the issue here, as I can watch videos or streams on other platforms such as Netflix with no issues, and as soon as I pause the Twitch stream the issues are resolved immediately. Upon inspection Twitch seems to use the "Highwind-video player" which is very difficult to find much information about online.



    Additionally I don't think it is an issue specific to my web browser, as I have tried downloading the Twitch app and using that to watch streams instead of my web browser and get the exact same issues.



    I don't believe the problem is related to performance either, as turning down the graphics settings to minimum and even reducing the resolution to 1280x720 has no effect on the framerate dropping, and my computer can run the game (Borderlands 3) on maximum graphics settings at a steady 60fps at all other times, including streaming Netflix on monitor B, etc.



    I've tried updating my graphics drivers, multiple restarts, downloading further Windows 10 updates, etc. Does anyone have some ideas for tackling this problem?
