So I recently purchased an older computer, but I am having an issue with it.

 

It plays games, even heavy load ones such as Minecraft, with no lag. But YouTube videos lag and glitch.

 

Specs are as follows:

-Pentium 4 processor @ 2.80GHz

-2.5GB  DDR RAM (333MHz)

-8GB ATA Hard Drive (for whatever difference it makes)

-Radeon 7000 series graphics card w/ 64mb VRAM

-Windows XP Pro SP3

 

Internet connection is 

Ping: 50ms

DL: 27.07mbps

UL: 7.54mbps

 

Any ideas?

Updating adobe flash player may help. Java too possibly.

Tried updating Flash Player, but I'm using Google Chrome so that's all set. Downloaded the latest version of Java for XP (Hence being able to play Minecraft).

 

I am at a loss. My specs seem fine and most everything is up-to-date, but it's having a moment.

Try a different browser, IE, Firefox, and see if it does the same.

What quality level are you using for the YouTube videos? 360p? 720p?

If you are using higher quality, then that might be it. Flash is a processor intensive protocol. Combine that with higher quality videos and you might be over taxing your system.
