Choppy internet?

by Cr4ator / April 22, 2013 7:06 AM PDT

Hello, I can't watch a single youtube video without experiencing a freeze. Here is what happens during 6 minute video clip:

As you see it's almost impossible to watch... This happens occasionally in other sites too. I remember once or twice even froze during the test.
Same with bigger downloads from sites - I have to pause then resume to finish downloading but file gets damaged from it.
Sometimes it downloads smoothly though ;l

Torrents download with no problems.

Also, sexy videos never freeze Grin

So what's wrong with my internet? Changing browsers or anti virus didn't make any difference ;l maybe I should configure router in some specific way?

Win7 64bit newest updates
Gygabite P61-USB3-B3
Intel i3-2120
No parts were OC'ed

Please help!

Did you try the usual? Google this phrase.

-> Disable FLASH hardware acceleration.

This only affects some machines but when you write YouTube, I do that first.

I remember trying this out ages ago but it was not related to the issue!

Given the sparse clues I'll wait for more.
