    YouTube Freezes On Chrome

    Hello everyone. For the last couple of days, I am unable to watch videos on YouTube on Google Chrome. Youtube keeps freezing and I have no idea why, and it has never happened before. Does anyone know why this happens and how can I fix it. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

    Have you tried all the usual stuff like rebooting your modem and router and checking nobody else using the same Internet connection is doing a big download?

    I've had a occasional funny things happen on Youtube in the past few days but not what I'd really call "keeps freezing".

    Yes, I have tried all of the above. But the problem was the same. After I did a Google search, I found this and after applying all the processes mentioned there one by one, one process solved my problem, that is, I disabled the Hardware Acceleration in Chrome.

    Excellent.
    If, as can be possible in some cases, things don't quite work as well as before now that 'Hardware Acceleration' is switched off, I'd suggest you try updating (or just re-installing) your video drivers and then see if switching it on again still causes problems. But obviously if things are fine now it's likely safer and easier to continue as you are.
