Playing videos in Firefox via Kali OS is choppy and very slow

Hello team, hope you're doing well. I purchased a new laptop recently(HP Omen 16 with RTX 3070Ti). I installed Kali OS via VMware, which runs on my host machine(Windows 11).

Everything seems to be working fine in Kali, except when I try to play any video via Firefox Browser, it lags a lot and is very choppy. At first, I thought it was the issue with Kali hence, I reinstalled Kali and tried again. The issue still persists. I then did a clean Windows 11 install and tried everything again right after Win11 was set up, but I still couldn't find a solution. Tried all the methods which I could find online, but still, nothing worked.

I tried again, but this time with Windows 10 Pro on VMware. The issue was resolved and everything worked perfectly fine when videos were played on Microsoft Edge.


I've installed the Firefox browser on my host machine, and everything runs smoothly on my host machine(Windows 11), but the issue occurs only when videos are being played in the Firefox browser via Kali on Vmware/VirtualBox. I had asked many known people, but none of them have ever faced this issue with Firefox to date. Neither did I with my previous laptops. This is the first time something like this has occurred.

Issue: Any Video, from any site, when being played in Firefox Browser via Kali OS in Vmware/VirtualBox lags a lot and it is super slow(even when the video speed is set to normal). The audio that comes out from each video is like a robotic voice and it is super slow and laggy.

Kindly help and I really hope that we can resolve this issue!!!
