    Problem with Video Files (including YouTube)

    Hi All,

    I'm not sure if this goes under Performance & Maintenance or Video/Graphic Cards, but lately, I've been experiencing a lot of artifacts in any video I watch on my computer. This is for any file type (mp4, avi, mkv, etc.). Audio continues fine, but the video freezes. The moment I move my mouse, the video tries to catch up to the audio and I get artifacts (or what I think are artifacts) [screenshot attached].

    This is happening to videos that are streaming online, too. For example on YouTube, the audio will continue on as normal, but video will slow down and freeze on a frame until I move my mouse or make the video full screen.

    All drivers are totally up to date and I'm not having any issues with the graphics cards (I've got two GTX 980's - but I have disabled SLI). I can play games with no problems or issues. This is only occurring with video files.

    Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
