So Im currently watching a stream on Twitch at "source" and it's pretty much using up 80-90% of CPU.
While watching 1080p youtube clips, my CPU usage is somewhere like 10-20%.

So, are streams from Twitch uncompressed or something?

Depends on the Stream. Twitch streams can be uncompressed at times.
