Pretty much any online video I play on my laptop are skipping very bad. Regardless of resolution. However it does get worse when it's in 720p or 1080p. Even 360p will skid. Anybody know what's going on here? It's not my internet speed because I have tried it at many locations over wi-fi or even hard wired with a ethernet and it still skids. Same thing with GIF files.

Reps will be given, thanks

What model of laptop is it? What OS/web browser are you running? Downloading too much porn at the same time?

If its def not the internet connection, I would try updating the graphics drivers and running something like cccleaner to delete cookies and temp files.

If the quality settings have an effect, I'd say your graphics card (or processor if you have integrated graphics) can't keep up

Windows 7, Google Chrome. Does the same thing in any browser. Tiger, I already used Ccleaner.

Laptop is a Toshiba laptop. It worked fine before but in the last few months, it runs like ****. Everything (gpu,cpu,ram, hard drive) is from the factory. Bone stock lol

you might have run out of memory. Check to see how full your hard drive is. Should be at less than 75% full.

If its a thing that just started recently you need to do a search for malware, spyware etc...sounds like you have downloaded something that is eating up your system resources...

You can also go to:
C:\Users\***yourusernamehere***\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Cache

and delete everything there. Do the same in your temp folder (go to the run box and type in %temp%).

I only have 28.8% used.

Find out the model of the laptop and download new drivers for your graphics card from toshiba's website.
Driver is up to date.

I did use malware bytes. Came up with nothing. It was the free version though. Should I buy the full version and try it after? Not sure what the difference is between the two.

What would deleting all this stuff do? Would I loose all my saved passwords and other stuff on Chrome?

Nope, they're just cache and temporary files your browser saves so that it can load pages and content faster. If you have a massive amount of files accumulated here, it can sometimes bog down chrome.

You could also give this a shot


1. Open a new tab in Chrome.

2. In the address bar, type about:plugins, then press Enter.

3. In the upper-right corner of the window, locate and click the plus sign next to Details.

4. Look for Adobe Flash Player, which on my system was the top entry. Immediately below that, you should see two Shockwave Flash entries. Look at the Location lines for both; you want the one that references PepperFlash. (Again, on my system, this was the first of the two. It looked like this:

C:\Users\Aspire8950\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\ 24.0.1312.52\PepperFlash\pepflashplayer.dll)

5. Once you find that entry, click Disable.

6. Exit Chrome, wait a few seconds for it to fully terminate, and then restart it.

Now your YouTube videos should play much more smoothly. (If you run into playback problems, you may need to reinstall Adobe Shockwave. I didn't encounter this issue, but a few users reported it.)

When you disable it, it won't let you play any videos at all.

Any other ideas?
