  1. It seems like the Netflix UWP app only uses about less than 30% of the Video Decode Engine for my RX 5700. I wonder if that's why the app stutters when there is other activity on screen sometimes? Idk. A 1080p YouTube video will use about 50% of the Video Encode Engine.

      My wife watches netflx all day on an old dell xps with a much less powerful GPU hooked up to a 4k monitor and it's butter smooth on Chrome.  She tried the app for a day and ditched it soon after.

      @Twilight The problem with that is that the app is the only way to get 1080p playback if I'm not mistaken.

      If you have the right plan and equipment you can stream "Ultra HD".

      This says Edge must be used, but I think my wife uses Chrome.  I can check with her...
