Videoplayback is very choppy even with 360p MP4 Youtube Videos. Anything above this is mostly a slideshow.

Tested on my video player (LLs Video Player).

*edit 2 * My mistake apparently fixes the issue. It was an issue in my video player. It starts an animation image animation when hitting play in the background used for audio only tracks only. This is however set to opacity 0.0 when playing back video. Unfortunately it seems not to be enough to have it set to opacity 0.0 you need to make it invisible. I guess it is a limitation of the current driver state of Xperia X device as other devices show no bad side effects. Anyhow I was able to fix this by setting this animation image to invisible if opacity = 0.0 (fix landed in my current git version) With this I am able to playback youtube streams in 720p without any issues or lagging.

Indeed, I wonder if video is hardware accelerated at all, does not look like it.
