Does the sound skip or become "choppy" when you are watching YouTube videos or listen to music with Google Music in Chrome, and do other things on your computer? I have a pretty slow work computer, and was frustrated that I couldn't listen to my streaming music and work in Auto Cad, or any other programs without terrible skipping.

While playing around, I discovered that by disabling the PPAPI Flash plugin fixed this issue and had no effect to my Flash performance (except vast improvement). I'm not sure if this issue occurs in other browsers, but disabling this may help with them too.

Step 1: Go to Chrome plugin settings

In the address bar type "chrome://plugins" without quotes.

Click on the "+" beside Details, this will show all components of each plugin.
<p>Can't believe it, tried all sorts of other solutions and Voila! Worked instantly! Was one of those nagging things for months not worth spending real time on until I just said screw it and put the effort in to look this up. Thanks so much! </p>
<p>Thanks! That's been bugging me for a week and your solutions was perfect.</p>
<p>Good tip!</p>
<p>Worked like a charm! Many thanks.</p>
<p>Thanks for posting this! It solved my issue right away!</p>
<p>It worked!</p><p>You just made my day THANK YOU! I've been trying to fix this for MONTHS!</p>
<p>This totally fixed it, straight to point, no bullshit, people like you make this world a better place</p>
<p>I tried those fixes with no luck. On a whim I downloaded firefox(not as my default browser). I went to you tube and voila.... perfect audio. Enjoy.</p>
<p>worked for me, thank you!</p>
<p>Tried this, still no luck. Tried disabling both versions and following the links to reinstall flash and I get through the installation process and it still tells me I need to install flash. Chrome needs to completely remove their integrated version ASAP or seriously find a fix for this. I'm tired of my CPU being maxed out and lagging when I try to stream a video. I've tried multiple options and I can't seem to get it corrected.</p>
<p>Does nothing unfortunately </p>
<p>Better, still not fixed though.</p>
<p>It worked! THANK YOU!!!</p>
<p>Did the disable on the Chrome Pepper Flash (Out-of-process) months ago. Still have same problem with audio. :-( Helped on a couple of other problems though. :-) </p>
<p>i friggin love you man it worked been looking for a fix about 6 weekx yayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy</p>
<p>Hey thanks, I have had stuttering problem off and on.<br>Totally gone now. <br>win7 64bit<br>chrome - Version 36.0.1985.143 m<br>PS, NPAPI plugin will auto enable after every chrome update.</p>
