My audio and video quality has recently gotten very bad. It keeps breaking up, stopping mid-stream and sound is terrible. This is for streaming and playing back music.

Hello and welcome to Bleepingcomputer.

I can understand your stress when things stop working as they should.

I would like to offer you some assistance with your computer problem, but to make my job easier I would need to know some information about your computer.
So introduce us please.

Computer make and model number please.

Video card and sound card information would be helpful as well.

As much as I'd say your video may be an over heating problem, its not common for sound cards to act up, but just the same I have to ask when is the last time you performed any internal computer house keeping?

If its been a while, I would suggest you open that computer up if it is a desktop type and inspect cooling fans and heat sinks for dust build up.
If we're dealing with a laptop, those can still accumulate dust build up, a can of compressed air will sometimes do the trick with blowing out laptop computers.

If you need further instructions please ask, help is a key stroke away.

Bruce.
