What you might try
update all audio adapter drivers.
...make sure all video/audio codecs are updated. Before updating you need to remove any existing codec files in which some cases the media players themselves may have to be removed (uninstalled) then added back.
I like K-Lite codec pack as it seems to use the best codecs files around.
another issue that might cause this is Java. I have had java freeze on videos and gaming issues.
First you must open task manager and stop the jave rE process. (jqs.exe) then go to control panel add/remove and uninstall the JRE file . Once done then reboot and reload the jave file by visiting
post back and let us know if it works for you!
