    Computer Stutters when watching (copyrighted) content

    greatgriffin

      Hello, my name is Devon.
      I watch Netflix quite often, but recently, and encountered an issue. While watching a show, my computer will freeze for a half a second, every 2 seconds; even when paused or minimized. And its not just the video, other windows that are open stutter this way as well (my mouse curser stutters as well). I use Flixter desktop for all of my digital copies, which cause the stuttering as well. YouTube works fine, with the exception of YouTube Purchases (eg, Star Wars: The Force Awakens); this leads me to believe that "only Copyrighted content causes the Issue". The day before the Issue started, I updated: Radeon Settings to 17.11.4

       

      Computer Specs.

       

      OS: Windows 10 Home 64-bit
      Graphics Card: AMD R9 380 4GB
      CPU: AMD FX 8320 3.5 GHz overclocked to 4.1 GHz
      RAM: 16GB

       

      Solutions I have Tried.
      Uninstalling "AMD Software" from my programs and features
      Doing a PC Reset, (uninstalling and reinstalling Windows, while keeping personal files).

       

      Things that Cause the Issue
      Anything on Netflix
      All HD movies/Shows on Flixter Desktop
      All HD movies/shows at www.flixstervideo.com
      YouTube Purchases such as Star Wars: The Forse Awakens

       


      Things that don't cause the Issue
      Watching DVDs using VLC does not cause the Issue
      Regular YouTube Videos don't cause the Issue
      Computer Games don't cause the Issue
      Flixter Desktop movies/shows in SD
      All movies/shows in SD at www.flixstervideo.com
