Reduce FaceTime CPU when only using voice
Authored by: Strod on Apr 22, '13 02:26:22PM

Actually you don't need to put FaceTime in fullscreen to get it to pause the video. If the FaceTime window is in one Space (Desktop) and you move to a different Space the video stops while the audio continues. The people at the other end see a "video paused" message.

On the other hand, I honestly don't recall having 100% CPU usage under FaceTime. I have a 2009 15" MBP so you would expect that to happen to me, and I would have noticed the fans whirling during very long FaceTimes I sometimes have with my elderly parents abroad.
