HTML5 video causing stuttering with other programs

  Miasmata 18:48 08 Mar 2018

From maybe 2-3 months ago I've noticed that if I try and play HTML5 videos at the same time as something else (games, game-development, music development, etc.), both the browser and the other program (for example, League of Legends) will intermittently stutter for 10-30 seconds every 3-5 minutes. I can't find any similar issues on Google either, which weirds me out.

It shouldn't be a performance issue as my computer is rather beefy (1080ti, i7 7700k, etc) and I've also discerned that it isn't a browser-specific issue (Chrome, Firefox, MS Edge, all have this issue, with or without Hardware Acceleration) and to be honest I'm flat out of ideas, save for a reinstallation of Windows, which I'd like to leave as a last resort fix.

As for my specs;

OS: Windows 10 Pro 64x

Motherboard: Gigabyte Z270x Gaming K5

CPU: Intel i7 7700k (running at 1.295V, 100BCLK, 4.5GHz clock speed, 42 Uncore multiplier)

GPU: ASUS Nvidia GTX 1080ti (running 1,607 GPU clock, 11,010 mem clock)

RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX 2x8GB, 3,000MHz, 1.35V, 15/17/17/35 CAS Latency

Storage: 1x Samsung 960 EVO 250GB, 1x Intel 520 Series 120GB, 1x 2TB 7200RPM Hard Drive (unknown make/model), 1x 320GB 7200RPM Hard Drive (unknown make/model)

Displays: 1x BenQ XL2730Z, 144hz 2560x1440, running on DisplayPort 1.4, 1x Unknown Acer Monitor, 60hz 1920x1080, running on DVI, 1x BenQ G2400W, 59hz 1920x1200, running on HDMI

I can provide additional information on request, just not sure where to start with this. Any help would be appreciated, as due to this issue I can't casually watch a Twitch stream or Youtube video alongside a game, or watch a Youtube tutorial while developing.
