    For about a month now I have been trying to watch youtube videos, but the video slows down while the audio plays perfect and then the video will skip up to where the video is supposed to be but then repeat the process. I have tried restarting my computer, I updated my Adobe, and I updated Java. I also uninstalled and reinstalled both of those things but nothing worked. This also started happened right after I installed 8gb of ram but I don't see why that would cause it to slow down. I also do not want to uninstall the ram. I used the exact same one that was already installed.

    Update the drivers and the web browser. Youtube allows you to use HTML5 instead of Flash. Go to the following.
    Code:
    https://www.youtube.com/html5
    
    If you still have problems, run memtest for 24 hours.

    If memtest provides with no bad reports, either your computer has limited performance or your ISP is limiting your connection to Youtube.

    To rule out the RAM, you could simply uninstall it long enough to test. If the problem stops, it's a RAM issue. If the problem continues, it's likely not the RAM.

    Removing the RAM is easier and much quicker than running a RAM test. I would do that first.
