I still have this problem now and again, I was just watching a program that was around 45 minutes long, at around 37 minutes I got the 3 second freeze and then back to normal. I am on the power plan for my Laptop so everything is working full power including the processor. After the freeze the video playys back fine and if I go back to the same place in the video it will play back fine, no skips. I can still hear the audio when the video skips and it seems to be random.
What is causing this to happen?
It doesn't seem to do this everytime, random stuff
