My only wish is that 1080p@60fps didn't result in choppier playback than non-60fps. I have a 3.5ghz Haswell quad with no HT. It shouldn't be choppy. I had to disable hardware accelerated playback because is was pretty much broken, getting something like 3fps on my AMD6950. A normal 1080p stream plays back just fine.

phenom II 955 black
8gb ddr3 800mhz (usually less than 500mb useable)
amd r9 280X OC to a ghz edition spec

60fps plays just fine for me.

Why is this article comparing VP9 to H264. It feels like a promotion article. VP8 was the competitor to H264. VP9 should be compared with H265. That's an article I'd be interested in.

I'm still personally using x264 (via MeGUI) for all my encodes. I'm more familiar with the parameters and characteristics of it and it will continue to have the broadest support for quite some time before the next codec takes over.

I have high hopes for Daala as they are creating it focusing on keeping detail and textures from the start vs current codecs that smooth and block everything then rely on post processing to make it presentable.

This device looks pretty handy for a mobile HTPC. There has been many times I have been at a family member/friends house and none of their devices are capable of USB Media playback.

Looks like it is also capable of light casual gaming as well, according to some Atom Z3735F benchmarks it can run slightly older games at lowest details. Pretty decent capability for what the device is.

I'm having the same issues and also using a 6950. There should be no reason I cannot play 1080p60 YouTube videos whilst gaming at and above that framerate is just fine.

Intel integrated graphics runs 60 fps just fine with no choppiness, Nvidia cards also work well. Perhaps your drivers are not up to date or something else is wrong with your setup.

I have the newest stable drivers and I have a Windows 8.1 Pro install that is only a few months old, no registry tweaks of any kind, no special OC software, no graphics tweaking software, etc. I no longer "tweak" my system, I just use stock settings.

VP9 or H265. I have not seen many devices that are able to encode on H265, we are still stuck in H264, to one exception with the Samsung NX1 I believe. I personally fell in love with the XAVC codec for my youtube videos (which is still a modified version of H264 with a different bitrate). So yes if youtube is VP9 compatible now it might became a general format adopted by the consumers, unlike the H265 format.

New standards take time to be adopted in the consumer market, patience young padawan...
I' m more than satisfied with the XAVC format from sony, it fulfills my needs 100% in a hardware solution. Now I am going to check the TOS from youtube, because it might have changed with the XAVC format so it can put more people on the bandwagon with VP9.

The choppy playback for 60fps seems to be an issue that afflicts 6*** and older AMD cards. And the odd nvidia card. Least AMD could fix this if they could be bothered. nVidia? Not so much.

This is definitely your problem. I have an old 3.1Ghz i3 and 60fps plays no problem.
