I try to see 2160p (4k 60fps) content on Youtube, but I experience a lot of frisky frames … d. H. The video freezes / stutters completely (the sound is fine).
The youtube example I use: Costa Rica – 4k 60fps – Youtube
If I look at the video in 1440p, it will play smoothly without dropped pictures. When switching to 2160p, however, the video is stopped / stuttered due to the large number of dropped frames (80%) (see below).
Therefore my internet (via cable) is stable and ok and I use the VP9 codec in combination with HTML5 and Mozilla Firefox / Microsoft Edge (same result). I do not use hardware acceleration.
My PC specifications:
- MSI H97M-G43
- Intel Core i5-4460 Boxed
- MSI GeForce GTX 1080 GAMING X 8G
- Crucial Ballistix Tactical BLT2C4G3D1608ET3LX0CEU
- Seasonic M12II Evo 620W
- LG 27UK850-W silver
- Windows 10 Education (is Pro version) – Version 1803 – Build 17134.590
- Nvidia driver – 188.8.131.521 (NVIDIA 417.71)
So in my opinion it should be enough to watch 2160p videos on Youtube. The CPU is a bit stressed, but the load is 80%. The GPU barely runs because 2160p content requires a lot of decoding from the CPU.

Does anyone have any idea what is wrong / how to fix it (software setting or is it really the CPU)? Thanks for all the information!
