Do people actually use Linux on desktops unironically?

    Was it a 4K video? Those use way too many resources full stop, even on windows. I'm not sure what encoder they use for them but it's stupid.

      Get a better GPU. It works fine for me. I only see stuttering when playing back ridiculously high resolutions like 8K video and even then it fairs quite well, the stuttering is momentary, enough to ruin the playback and be noticeable but at least it's not constant.

    I run linux on a potato and can watch youtube just fine. Have you tried watching videos through an invidious mirror, maybe?

    You aren't gonna like my answer, but browsers aren't meant to play video. Use a video player. mpv + yt-dlp works very well for YouTube videos, Twitter videos, and more:

      zoomers just don't know any better. They've been in corporate walled gardens their whole lives, dutifully consuming in the approved ways, largely unaware that any other way is even possible.
