Brackets is a free, open source editor based on web technologies with a primary focus on web development. It is cross-platform and is backed by Adobe.

WebStorm runs on Linux as well as macOS and Windows. A commercial tool, reasonably priced with active development and support.

I'll recommend Visual Studio Code, it could exists something better than a lightweight code editor from the team that developed the most powerfull and complete IDE environment for programmers (undeniably, unless you have not yet tested. ) ?
Please reffer to the indications in this StackOverflow post to see how to see the preview in the webbrowser:

Great question – because it is something I constantly ask myself! I write academic books and journal articles and am in need of something like this.

I've faced similar problems with web-based markdown editors (id est, not supporting live previews or Github-flavoured markdown), so I've built my own widget, based on Parsedown Extra and TCPDF (for MD to PDF output, via HTML).

On Linux you should be able to code something yourself if you are using a simple webcam for the video. In a loop wait 1 second, then run a utility like fswebcam (usually a standard package in most Linux distributions), to take a single jpg or png picture, and then use ImageMagick to compare the last 2 images.

"run it smoothly", as you call it, is a highly subjective human concept, that doesn't mean much to a machine.
How would a piece of software, like VirtualBox (or similar), know what you mean by "smooth" and what characteristics are required to run an OS "smoothly"? The parameters are so many and so varied that I doubt a software could figure it out by itself....
