Deezer App HIGH CPU Usage on Windows


I am using Deezer 4.3.4 Windows app 32 bits and it has an average of 50-55% of CPU usage. This is incredibly high for a simple streaming app. I do not know what is does on the background, but I know it;s not decoding NASA data. Maybe it's farming Bitcoin... It;s outrageous! I have a i5-7500 wih 3.40GHz , 8GB RAM. Seriously thinking to cancel subscription and uninstall if this is not "fixed" in the next update! Fix your app!

Hi @Rudi ,

Followed the steps and now it seems to work fine after an hour of listening. It only consumes 5-10% of CPU, which is acceptable. I'll come back if the problem reappears.

Hi there @Vladut Dascalescu

Could you please uninstall the app, then search for %appdata% on your start menu and then delete the Deezer folder. After that, reinstall the app and let me know how it goes.

Not working for me. Still high CPU load, still freezes on Win7, Win10.

It has low CPU usage just for short period.

Hey @Jozef is the CPU this high when you stream/download or when the App is started but you're not listening with it yet? 🙂
For me, I just listened/steamed. The app froze and force closed several times in the evening. After restarting the app the third or fourth time, my fan was forced to run at 80% all the time. When I checked CPU temperature, it was 68° Celsius, which is by far more than I have during gaming session.
So I've got to say that this is the worst app in power consumption. Especially when it comes down to efficiency..... Streaming music but working as if it pulled tractors around ^^

Hey @Die Sauers

Could you please trying uninstalling the app, searching for %appdata% and deleting the Deezer folder? Then you should restart your PC and reinstall the app again to see if the CPU consumption changes. Let me know!
