Videos originally recorded at 60fps, when viewed on the windows video player seems to be 15-30fps. 
The game cities skylines runs poorly unless I end Radeon host task with task manager, but then it opens itself a second after and the frames go lower again. I can, however stop this problem by running the game windowed. same with windows video player. the performance is also normal if i press the windows button while watching a video or playing cities.


the thing is, I want to play fullscreen with normal performance and the only way is to not have radeon host service running, otherwise my fps is super low. (this shouldn't happen anyways, with a ryzen 5 3600, and rx 5700 xt.)


here is a video of cities skylines running poorly in fullscreen but smooth when windowed or after pressing windows button
