Sorry if this post is long.

Streaming videos on any site I try have a problem where the video will hang for a moment before jumping ahead to the correct point. The audio is totally normal the entire time. But it's inconsistent when this happens. Sometimes it'll happen for the entirety of a video, while other times it's just for a couple seconds.

I've gone through multiple versions of Firefox and Flash (this has been happening on and off for a long time) and tried different browsers. I've also tried deleting cookies and clearing the cache.

And as far as I can tell, this only happens with streaming video. Not anything on my hard drive.

Which processor do you have?

Hardware acceleration is enabled?

Intel Core i7, and yes.

When I had a similar problem it was a slow processor with acceleration disabled. Clearly not your case.

Yeah, that's why this is really frustrating for me. I can't find anything wrong with my computer from a performance standpoint.

It's because Flash is crappy. I've had some success with uninstalling Flash completely then doing a fresh install, but that only fixes the problem temporarily, sooner or later it'll start doing it again.

But not everyone has this problem, right? I know I didn't with my previous laptop. Surely there's something I can change to permanently fix it?

I've been looking for a fix for quite a while now, haven't found anything that fixes it permanently yet. If there's something I want to see without skips I'll use Chrome just for that one video. It seems to work better.

Is it a laptop? If it is try changing the Power Options to High Performance so it doesn't throttle your CPU.

Just tried it, but it didn't work. Didn't think it would since this thing is powerful enough for gaming even when it's in Energy Star mode and not using the dedicated GPU.

Seems like whatever the problem is has to be Flash related. :\
