Playing videos in the small or large player is fine, and 60fps videos look nice and smooth, but when I fullscreen, the video drops down to about 27fps no matter what quality it is, and the player itself gets really unresponsive while the video is playing. It takes several seconds to pause, and all the animations are very laggy. Strangely, when I unpause the video or pause using the spacebar, the video reacts almost instantly, but the animation in the middle of the screen is still laggy.
Note: Playback in chromium is fine, and hardware acceleration is disabled because when I enable it, it makes visual artifacting, tearing when scrolling, and extreme lag.

[EDIT]: At 1080p 60fps large player mode (theater) the player's animations will lag, but pausing/unpausing will respond immediately. In this mode the CPU usage ranges from 30 - 75% on each core, which is absolutely absurd, considering my hardware.
