Choppy Youtube Videos

Post by johnywhy » Sat Aug 04, 2018 7:23 pm

Version (based on Chromium 66.0.3359.117) (Official Build) (64-bit)
Linux Mint 19 xfce


When watching Youtube videos, the video stream stops for a split second every few seconds. In general, the video feels choppy.

I don't have this problem with Opera, Chromium, Iron, or Chrome browsers.

Any fix?

Click the gear icon (lower right in video) & lower the quality of the video from say 720 to 480, etc. You can also disable 'Use hardware acceleration when available' in Slimjet advanced settings & see if that helps any.
