You know what the biggest problem is with websites? Many of them actually use a poorly designed video software. Adobe Flash is the common standard for many websites to operate on. However, there is one slight problem that they haven’t seem to fixed yet.
The biggest problem with Adobe Flash is that it’s resource heavy. I’m not talking about Video Graphics Cards here, I’m talking about Processor or CPU. In fact, I myself have issues with playing videos on Youtube and other Various Websites that use Flash, because it uses a lot of my CPU. In fact, some sites use as much as 70% – 90% of my CPU. We can’t have that.
Why is this an issue? Simple, Video is meant to be processed by the Video Graphics Card. That’s the whole reason that card was designed for. The CPU was meant to process actions, such as when you click on play, the video is supposed to start. But for some reason, the makers of Flash, apparently can’t figure out how to make your Video Graphics Card process the video instead of the Process.
Yeah, I know I’m rambling here, but really there is no excuse for Adobe. They have a Team of Developers at their disposal. Instead of trying to create new products all the time, fix the one that is the Standard. Anyone with their head on straight, could take a small team of Developers and make a much better Flash version than what Adobe has come up with.
I’ve also experienced this issue with Google Plus. Have you ever joined a Hang Out on Google Plus and checked your CPU usage? A lot of times, my CPU usage is very high. In the 60%-70% range. A friend of mine and I were using Google Plus Hang Outs to record Podcast with. However, we had to switch to a different platform for that very reason.
However, while Google Plus does use their own platform, there is no excuse from them either. Seriously, if you’re going to make a product, do it right. Especially if it’s a Software program. It’s almost as though they rush these things out or something. Oh well, there’s my rant for the day.
