Windows Central Question

Whenever I try to play a video on YouTube or audio in Edge browser, it acts crazy. It plays for 2 to 3 seconds and suddenly goes back to playing from the start. Plays normally in Chrome though. How do I fix it? Please help.

same issue here. happens on both laptops of mine with Intel i5-4300U HD 4500 graphics. Tried different drivers for iGPU, chipset, audio, etc.

pretty ridiculous this is a common issue in edge and nobody has a fix, not even Microsoft.

Same here, Netflix is now fine, but Facebook Video playback is still buggy on edge.
No problem on the Surface 3 pro, and the VAIO All in One from sony is fine as well.

it might be the video driver from NVidia (people had issue with updatg Windows 10 for months before it was fix... ;/
I used 3Guru in safe mode to uninstall the NVidia drivers before reinstall it with the latest working version. again the VAIO with NVidia drivers is working just fine as always

Hope it help
