Google hangout how I curse thee
I use Google hangouts every single day for at least an hour if not three or more some days. Everything has been running fine up till the last week or so, my CPU would have a hissy fit, but not sound like it’s going to take off into the unknown and wallop itself against a wall to make it stop. Laptop is newish, bought at Christmas running precise, icore 5, 6GB ram and 128SSD and I love Sheldon to bits ( yes I do love TBBT).
In recent weeks Sheldon is complaining when I run a hangout an is rather upset at it’s CPU usage, 220% for a Google hangout seems crazy, and it was never like this way. Wondering has anyone seen or noticed anything change I can’t be the only one, and yet I don’t see any bugs open it! 🙁 After asking around Jcastro suggested I kill the GoogleTalkPlugin which I’ve now started to do after the call, but this however doesn’t really help me during the call and ends up me having to mute my mic a lot as the sound of the fan throwing a wobbly isn’t really helpful on the calls. Thoughts, suggestions?
