You'll have to try different settings and update your video drivers to see if that works. Maybe your hardware needs to be upgraded. It's hard to just give an answer because there's too many factors but you can narrow or solve the problem by trying to figure it out yourself. Some other areas to check that could cause this is your internet speed. Have you power cycled your modem? This could speed up your connection by reconfiguring your internet route. I would also recommend flushing your DNS while you're at it. I know it's a lot of stuff to do but I'm sure you can solve it by taking the time to find the problem.
I know a few others have this same problem. My suggestions apply to them too. No two computers are the same. But if many of us don't have this problem and some do then it's probably because of the hardware, settings and the speed/setup of their internet connection. Believe it or not, there's lots more things it could be like if you're using a proxy, VPN, etc.. Like I said, too many factors that could be causing the stuttering for you.
I understand you but I think my hardware is more than enough to play 1080p Youtube videos
1.) Hardware acceleration: enabled both in WF and Adobe Flash
2.) Video card: GTX560M with Nvidia 296.10 WHQL (I even tried 301.42 WHQL which is the latest one and still has the same problem)
3.) RAM: 8GB 1600MHz Kingston PnP
4.) CPU: i7-2670QM 2.2GHz (up to 3.1GHz Turbo)
5.) Definitely not because of my Internet speed because every video that I've watched streams fast (no buffer). I also told this forum before that the stutter even occurs even after the whole video is finished loading and I replay it from the start. I use a 30Mbps/1.5Mbps connection with very low latency. DNS is setup optimally by my pfsense router box.
So yeah, I would consider my system up-to-date. This is why I'm confused why I'm having this issue. As I've said, I don't have any problems with FF13 and IE.
