I need computer help

This is bit random, so if it doesn't belong I understand.  BUT... I'm losing my mind dealing with a youtube problem so if any one has advice I'd be most appreciative.

About a week ago, all youtube vids for me suddenly began a video lag every 3 seconds.  The audio is completely fine.  The video just pauses for .5-1 second every 3 seconds, then skips ahead so it's matched up again, then repeats.

I've poked around other streaming/video sites and it's only youtube that's affected.  It's not buffering either, I really just don't know.

I've tried restarting my compy (which is new and nice), watching in lower settings, seeing if anything is acting weird in task manager, clearing my cache.....

Also, if I have a window (Word, internet tab, doesn't matter what) opened in front of playing window, it plays fine.  So my current work around is to have a tiny 2 inch window open in the corner of my screen. O_o

Any ideas?

What browser are you using?

Chrome. I've tried disabling extensions that might be messing with it, but no luck.

It works in Edge. <_<

If it works in edge but not chrome then I recommend uninstalling chrome and reinstalling it. (You won't lose any data if you have synced your google account to chrome)

You could also try using a different browser all together.  I prefer firefox, but there are others out there.
