    vlc overheats computer

    I have no idea why but my CPU temp will skyrocket and it'll consume ~50% of my PC's CPU. I think this also happens when I boot up in Windows. I run on a hp pavillion g7-1070us.

    When I check terminal it sends back the following:

    Failed to open VDPAU backend libvdpau_nvidia.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

    Although I'm sorta use to seeing errors on terminal for the majority of apps I run.

    You have nvidia card?
    Please give details of your system, CPU, GPU.
    Are you using proprietary drivers for your nvidia card?

    From the error with libvdpau_nvidia.so it seems like that .
