CPU usage: Browser source better than local file?


New Member
Hello there,

I'm trying to optimize my cpu load (older cpu) while streaming.
I watched some videos where they say, that it's better to use browser sources instead of local files.

But how does that make sense?
The browser source must be rendered like everything else right?
Or is it about hardware encoding?

On my setup, I let the GPU encode all media sources + browser sources, so it's not everything on the cpu.

So: is it true? Should I embed every single scene as browser source for better cpu load?
