What else do you have running? Other peeps aren't having any troubles . Antivirus???No luck, also tried with the Intel sound driver. I think sad enough to say that Chrome appears to be the only solution, it's MUCH better, not as many frustrating choppy audio and crackles etc, I'll try take a video to explain more, it's like the audio drops, crackles, video gets choppy. Seems much better with Chrome.
