I have a Dell I5 desktop processor, running Windows 8.1.  It's about six months old.  If I try to load a Youtube video, it won't run properly (jumpy video and audio) until I reboot the computer.  After a reboot, the Youtube videos run fine.  This happens almost every time I want to view a Youtube video.  Once I reboot, the videos run fine, and I can run them again and again. 


I previously had an HP desktop with an I7 processor, running Windows 7, and I never had any problems with Youtube videos.


Any easy solution?
