Chrome, Youtube stutter

Recommended Posts

metallithrax    489

I am using Chrome Version 28.0.1500.72 m, although this was happening before this version.

 

When on Youtube, any video I watch stutters slightly every 15 seconds or so.

 

I have seen similar problems posted online with regard to Firefox, but none that gives a fix for Chrome.  Anyone know what the problem is?

 

Watching a particular video earlier in IE (to narrow down the problem) and had no problems.

Some things that can fix it.

 

- Close the browser if it has been open for a long time, wait ten seconds before restarting Chrome (memory leak).

- Disable unneeded extensions, or any that capture video and try again (after restarting Chrome).

Yep, disable the pepper version. First thing I always do in Chrome. Glad it worked out for you.

I told you it was Adobe Flash first.

 

Just don't get why people have to keep following me.

There are 2 components to 
Flashplayer in Chrome browser. Navigate to 
chrome://plugins  in the location bar

of the Chrome browser. (note: do not go to chrome://extensions)

Click "Details" on upper right.   

Disable Chrome's 
pepflashplayer.dll 
component.  Enable the 
Adobe 
NPSWF32_11_9_900_170.
dll  component or whatever
version you have.
Close browser and reopen
and navigate to your Youtube video
or whatever site.
It plays without stutter!
