over-heating while playing video with VLC/mpv

Dave Kimble


On Rock64, I use youtube-dl CLI app.to download the video (720p) during my off-peak bandwidth time, and watch with MPV or VLC later in fullscreen (1920x1080).  It plays OK, but this drives the temperature up to 89-92 ! This is a monitor of the results: http://davekimble.net/problem.video.replay.txt .

I think the dropped frames are because of 25 fps v 60 fps of the monitor.  I know it is a lot of work, but any ideas for reducing the workload welcome.


Anybody else get this?
