Is it just me, or does the HTML5 player under Chrome (which means VP9) seem to use far more CPU than Flash (which means fully hardware accelerated H.264 when fullscreen)? Any thoughts on getting around this? IE11 uses H.264 and HTML5 if forced away from Flash, but resolutions are limited (not to mention that the HTML5 player is dog slow at changing video resolutions for me). Firefox seems to not allow HTML5 at all on certain videos, like VEVO ones (monetized, so previously no HTML5 at all).
