I can’t figure out why this is the case, but YouTube videos in a popup on Chrome play very choppy and laggy. It drops lots of frames, playing back probably at about 5fps, and the video is also about a half second behind the audio.

It’s odd, because the popup videos play perfectly in both Safari and Firefox — it’s just in Chrome where they’re choppy.

Is this something that can be fixed in a future release?

In the meantime, do you have any suggestion for how to fix this temporarily?
