Playing song/video uses 25% CPU all the time regardless of types of player in use.
It basically revs up my CPU fan very frequently which is quite annoying.
iTune, foobar, MPC, VLC all of em shows similar CPU usage.
Normally CPU usage should not cross 5% -7% when playing just songs.
Now I'm suspecting this could be due to some rogue codec.
(already spent the whole evening on it with no clue whatsoever)
I'm on windows 7 64bit btw. Let me know your suggestions or even doubts as to what could be the reason for it.
