Default Win7 - Stuttering on youtube HD playback.

Hey guys,

Not sure exactly what is up with my PC at the moment but it is severely strugglying with HD playback on youtube Videos. What I mean is when watching anything above 480p ever 5 seconds of so the video will freeze for a second or so, audio will carry on fine, then video will catch back up, which is so very frustrating to watch. 1080p is pretty much unwatchable as it just starts and stops all the time.

Any Ideas? watching 1080p stuff locally (i.e moves etc) is absolutely fine, its just watching online. Obviously letting stuff buffer enough etc.

I5 @ 2.6ghz
GTX 570
8gb Ram

So obviously should not struggle, the only thing I can really think of is my Hard drive has less than 10% space left, could this be a issue? Ive tried updating flash, turning on and off hardware acceleration.

Make sure you have the newest Nvidia driver (not beta), which might be version 331.82.

But check here, for your OS and language (choose "manual driver search") : Drivers | GeForce

YouTube HTML5 Video Player

Many YouTube videos will play using HTML5 in supported browsers. You can request that the HTML5 player be used when possible.

If you encounter any problems, right-click on the player and choose "report playback issue", or let us know on the user support forums. Your feedback will help us continue to improve the player.
What does this browser support?

Try Youtube through this proxy.

If it works fine then Youtube is messing with you

let them know and they might fix it.

Pretty much narrowed it down to Firefox, be it some kind of memory leak or whatever, running a Few HD vids in tabs together absolutely tanks my frame-rate and makes them un-watchable. Nothing of the sort in Chrome. No idea why
