Windows 7: How to fix jerky YouTube video in Google Chrome

How to fix jerky YouTube video in Google Chrome

Posting this for anyone that is having problems with video in Chrome.

Lately I've noticed that whenever I play a YouTube video on my PC, it's jerky. Choppy. Call it what you will—it's really frustrating.

Semi-expert troubleshooter that I am, I did what I always do when experiencing a problem inside my browser: I tried a different browser. Specifically, I switched out of Chrome and into Internet Explorer.
And what do you know? Silky-smooth YouTube video. Google Chrome, j'accuse!

After a little research into the issue, I discovered a fix—one that worked for me. Your mileage may vary, of course, because each system and situation is different, but it's definitely worth a try if you're plagued by the same choppy playback in Chrome.

I can believe that. I've come across video sites that just will not accept "pepper flash", virgin media player is one.
