Re: Video now eats up CPU on EEE PC M8.5
Actually I meant kmplayer; and also performance seems to depend on the particular video file. Anyway, here is konsole output from kmplayer - ( doesn't seem to give clues):
Anywho.... I did re-run
sgfxi and it looked like it pulled some new intel drivers and xserver stuff in. Now skype seems to behave (still CPU is at or near 100%) --- but at least audio wasn't breaking up in my limited testing while doing video. kmplayer seems to behave better also.
Pending on more testing I'll mark as solved !
...Of course the real solution is to upgrade the EeePC 900
but I'm holding out as long as I can.
