Hello, I'm posting because I just cannot seem to get smooth video playback when I watch steams via the browser. When I start a video it takes awhile to start and intermittently throughout the stream the video playback will either stutter or completely stop. Usually I watch Crunchyroll streams via my Samsung Smart TV or Nexus 7 tablet and never encounter video playback issues on either of those platforms. But for some reason either in Chrome or FireFox, video playback via a browser stops and stutters. I've gone over the FAQ and have tried a number of remedies including "disabling hardware acceleration", "clearing my cache" of both browser and adobe files, ran a ping test, etc.

Here is a list of my computers specs:

Operating System (OS): Windows 7 - 64 bit
Web Browser and version number: Google Chrome Version 28.0.1500.95 m
Version of Flash: 11.8.800.97
Processor Type: Intel Core i5 3570k
Processor Speed: 3.40 GHz
Graphics Card Type: Nvidia GTX 670
Amount or RAM: 8GB @1600MHz
Amount of free space on your C: or OS partition: 67GB/120GB (Intel 520 SSD)

I have tried disabling Chrome’s built in Flash Plugin but then video playback is not possible anymore.

Doing this

Results in this

Speed test and Ping test result FYI

Any suggestions?
