Anything that plays video or audio is majorly delayed, how do I fix it?

  unusualCapitalist 18:03 16 May 2015

This has been going on for months now, and it's extremely annoying.

Windows Media Player, iTunes, YouTube, Vine, it buffers, but it doesn't play unless I wait for a minute or two. If I have two YouTube videos open, it'll take about a minute but then they'll both play at the same time. Once again, it buffers fine but it just doesn't play. :/

My computer's started to get slow and it freezes up sometimes and it's very frustrating. Not sure if those issues are linked together, but any help would be very appreciated.
