If I go by top, then the CPU usage of the plugin container spikes for all
videos on YouTube (usually to about 30-50% on one core with Flash HW
acceleration enabled). But as <https://www.youtube.com/html5> tells me I'm
using the default player, that doesn't seem too surprising.

Oh, nice. Do you know which commit resolves this? If not, do you need a bisect?
If yes, will that commit be backported to the 1.16 branch?
