    NUC5i7RYB freezes streaming video with any browser




      With Mozilla dropping NPAPI support in the latest version I lost the last browser that would stream video without freezing.(netflix, france24.com/en youtube,...).

      Right now my NUC is a very expensive brick.


      I have to run for now the Extended supported Firefox Release to be able to stream anything, but this version is plagued by image stuttering and poor video quality.


      As I mentioned in the title, with any browser - Edge, Chrome Mozilla- once I click on the icon to start streaming, the NUC unit freezes completely and the cpu fan starts running at full speed.

      The only option I have left is to hold down the power button to stop it.

      When I browse the os event log I do not see any meaningful critical message for hw or sw.


      NUC is the worst platform the big Intel came up with.


      With any other PC, laptop or tablet in the household I do not experience any of this issues.


      If you could help me, here is the system info:
