I'm getting moderate screen tearing anytime I stream video around 720p or higher. No issues while I'm playing games, just streaming video whether it's from Netflix youtube etc. I have VSync turned on and it set to buffer frames ahead in the Nvidia control panel. Not quite sure why I'm experiencing this.

My first guess would be Internet connection problems. Second would be the fact that most videos are not an even 30 FPS, so I think vsync could be actually causing problems in that sense. Don't set vsync universally either way, in my opinion.

Tried turning V-Sync off, it helped a little but not completely. It's not my internet connection:

Plus all the other computers/devices in the house stream with no issues.

Perfectly. Only game I experienced screen tearing with was Far Cry 3 and enabling v sync in the in game options fixed it completely.
