PC / Windows 7 (yes, still) / Firefox 100.0.2 :
Past several months on Firefox, when attempting to access a video either embedded (say, in a news site or YouTube), the download is unusually slow, with such screen notices (attached) appearing.
The "gray bar" across the bottom (which, as I understand it, indicates buffering/caching activity) immediately loads up about .25%, then awaits the video to play . . . and then it sits there and goes through any combination of the attached .jpgs.
Quite often, regardless of how many tabs are open (perhaps a half dozen), the (Not Responding) message will show up, and then it's just wait it out (usually 15-45 seconds).
Any solutions / comments / directions-to-point-me-in?
Appreciated. Thank you.

Link to problem video so others can see if they get the same issues?
Thank you for your response.
However, from my initial post "attempting to access a video either embedded (say, in a news site or YouTube)," it's clear I'm not referring to a single video . . . so your suggestion isn't applicable.
I have this problem and it's 100% reproducible at: https://www.reddit.com/r/CatastrophicFailure/
Lenovo Thinkpad x140e Windows 7 (all updates installed) Mozilla 100.2.8174
These symptoms started @ May 21. See attached file "Recently installed".
Scrolling down the Reddit page videos will auto-play when exposed, and stop when scrolled past.
Video not loading/playing will occur on different posts/videos, but will ALWAYS occur. Some previously exposed and played videos, when scrolling up, will replay. Some will not.
This will also randomly occur on Youtube when multiple tabs are open. Sometimes closing other open tabs corrects the problem. Other times closing Firefox and relaunching is required and 100% effective.
I have additional diag data / Inspector log files and page source if needed.
Please advise. Thank you.
