    I have a 2014 MBP 13 inch 16g Ram

    Whenever I stream video using Anything but Safari it gets hot and the fans start screaming almost instantly is there a fix for this?

    2nd question
    Chrome kills my battery but my work apps don't work well with any other browser. Does anyone know what causes this?

    There is no fix because nothing is broken. It's working as designed. Streaming video puts load on the machine, which generates heat, and the fans mover air to carry it away.

    You can try to reset the SMC...may help, may not.

    Streaming video does place the machine under a bigger load and will cause it to heat up which in turn makes the fans spin faster.

    Chrome is known battery and resources hog...not much you can do about that one.
