    Hi,

    Running a late 2013 (Haswell) rMBP, 2.3GHz/16GB/512GB SSD/Nvidia GT 750M.

    I am using Windows 7 SP1 x64 in bootcamp regularly and find whenever I watch youtube videos it routinely jumps/lags if you know what I mean. Not serious but makes it irritating to watch videos. Before people start, no it is without a doubt not my connection (120Mb/s) and youtube works fine in OSX, it seems to happen no matter what quality I choose.

    Surely this shouldn't be happening on such a powerful system? Anyone else experience this or perhaps has a solution?

    Thanks

    Have you tried using a plugin that forces youtube to serve html5 video instead of flash?

    Does your Device Manager in Windows 7 show any issues with any hardware (particularly Display Adapters; Monitors; or Sound, Video and game controllers?) Or, any other Device Manager hardware issues at all?

    What browser are you using? Try different one or downgrade the version.

    Tried using the latest version of IE and it worked fine. Seems to just be Firefox :(

    Before I downgrade the firefox to 24.0 (from newer version, forgot which) to resolve the lag issue in flash video player.
