Google chrome keeps freezing, whenever i play YouTube videos. It started when i got my new computer. (Last November. ) Whenever i go to play a YouTube, the video it freezes up. Then after about 15 seconds, or more it says google chrome is not responding.


The freeze can last anywhere from 15, to 60 seconds. Usually its like 15 seconds, then it unfreezes for about 2 seconds, then freezes back up, for another 15 seconds or more. Sometimes I'll have to wait for a whole minute or more. Its getting really annoying, I've tried disabling all my extensions, I've tried uninstalling and re installing and uninstalling and re installing adobe flash. nothings worked. BTW i run on windows 8. 1 64bit pro. If anyone has a solution, it would be greatly appreciated!
