When I’m streaming an HD x264 video from an SFTP source on my MacBook Pro 15" late 2013 running macOS Big Sur it gets extremely hot and the fans turn up really high.
I’ve got Chrome and VSCode open in the background as well as some minor apps.
I know my MacBook is a bit dated by now but it should be able to play such a video without problems, Im viewing it on the internal screen.
The bitrate of the video is 2728 kb/s
My MacBook has the following specs.
2.0 Ghz Intel i7
Intel Iris Pro 1536 MB GPU
I’m using Infuse Version 6.5.7 Pro
