I used to be able to watch youtube videos and other online video players just fine while running GPUGrid in the background. Only until about a week ago this has unfortunately changed and playback has become laggy unless fullscreen.

I'm not sure if a chrome update is to blame or perhaps something was changed with one of the GPUGrid applications?

Does anyone else notice this?

I just tested it right now without full screen and had no issue for me. What computer is this issue happening on?

There does seem to be many problems affecting users differently with Nvida drivers higher than 385.41 (see Nvidia forums)

I have problems 'unless' fullscreen.

I apologize, I misread this. This is happening on my main computer, http://www.gpugrid.net/show_host_detail.php?hostid=327304. I don't use chrome on the other computers so I don't know if this is happening to them as well. What driver are you on?

New driver fixed it. Funny thing is, I haven't changed the driver on this computer in months so it must've been a chrome update interfering with the old driver or perhaps the driver degrading over time.
