Youtube lagging every few seconds

Posted

The audio continues to play but the video stops. I've tried everything from Malwarebytes, disabling hardware acceleration and using the about:config.

Could you check whether you are using the built-in "HTML5" video player or Flash? Generally speaking, you can distinguish them by right-clicking the player.

There is an add-on which allows you to force one player or the other on YouTube and it might be worth experimenting to see which one works better/worse:
