Youtube videos causing huge lag on fullscreen games

Hey everyone, i'm experiencing a recent and strange problem.

I will be playing a pc game on fullscreen mode, I will alt+tab out to play just 1 song on Youtube, then tab back into my game while the song is playing.

Here is where the problem starts, when the video/song is over, it will drop my fps and lag my game like crazy, and i mean dropping my fps more than half.

I have to tab back out and close the youtube tab to get my game back to normal...If anyone has any sort of idea what could be causing this, that would be great.

Its just really strange to me that i get lag AFTER the video/song is over and not during. (btw playlists on youtube dont cause problems until the last song on playlist is done and the playlist is finished...

Ok guys ive found a fix for this. All I had to do was turn off (uncheck) "Hardware Acceleration" on Youtube. I did this by watching a video on Youtube and right clicking the video itself and clicking settings > adobe flash player settings > uncheck hardware acceleration.

Anyways, thanks for reading and if you have the same problem, try this and it will most likely fix it for you as well!

wel it actualy depends coupel of problem indeed the hardware exeleration so adobe uses your graphic card witch your game wants to use at same time not to happy with that

or 1 more the ms if i open a youtube movie its starts downloading the movie at 1mb/s witch is my max and i lag in game cause of that

or it simpely is your procesor witch cant handel both at the same time tho this is more likely with cheap laptops it kinda cant be helped unles you are a computer expert over clock it and keep computer very clean of all the crap

notice there are laptops where the CPU prossesor AND GPU graphic prossesor ARE THE SAME UNIT
