How do I let Youtube (through my browser) use my GPU?

2 minutes ago, Curufinwe_wins said:

Youtube uses VP9, which the 750ti doesn't have hardware acceleration support for. That said, as long as the video works, does it really matter?

 

GM206 is the only maxwell card with hardware decoding of VP9

It works but I'd like for it to not be choppy when doing other things in the background :P

Thanks for the answer though.

My friend (who has a 4690, 16gb ram, gtx 1060 with gpu usage at ~30%) is able to use his graphics card for youtube playback. I can't seem to achieve this kind of hardware acceleration for playback and even 4k60 videos use less than 15% of my video card. Anyone know how I can change this? I tried Chrome and Firefox, with "Use hardware acceleration when available" enabled on Chrome.

Use SMPlayer with SMTube addon. And your YouTube will be much faster and smoother.
