Every time I try to enter a Google+ Hangout or video chat with google talk the cpu is driven to maximum (both cores), but the resolution of the webcam seems poor (<320x240) and the fps is even poorer (<10).
This happens already when starting a hangout and the webcam preview is displayed. The google talk plugin and google chrome dev are installed from the yaourt.
My system is x64, chrome and plugin (?!) should be x64 too.
WebRTC works like a charm for me, but every time the plugin comes in, it eats up as much cpu as it gets. Any ideas anyone? Is there someone who could confirm this?
