Windows 10: Can't watch films and game at the same time

    Can't watch films and game at the same time


    I run dual monitors and When I was rocking windows 8.1 I could game and watch movies at the same time with with no problems.

    Now I have upgraded to 10, every time I try and watch something the picture lags but the not the sound when I'm on a game. But if I select the tab running the film it runs fine even with the game running in the background. But as soon a select the game it go's back to being crap and stutters/lags.

    This happens while using VLC, windows media player and streaming online with things like YouTube, Netflix and everything you could think of for streaming films.

    I've done many scans to check for a virus and nothing came up.

    Probably not the cause but the game I play is called warframe.

    Any advise would be great.

    Thank you in advance.

    That is because there are still problems with resource management. 10525, which comes out in Oct. as 10.1, is supposed to fix some of those issues.

    Yup. Sometimes I might be gaming plus watching the football and streaming the tennis or athletics or whatever. Don't want to miss nothing just 'cos I'm gaming.
