While watching any streaming videos, especially on, say, twitchtv-- I have a friend who streams his Starcraft 2 games-- the video will freeze briefly, usually for no more than 3-5 seconds at a time, and usually not more often than once every 30-90 seconds. The screen does not flicker/turn black, the video just hangs for a few seconds. There is no audio lag, only video-- audio continues with no interruptions. Videos that are not being live-streamed, such as ones on YouTube, seem fine.
I run Windows 7 on an HP laptop. My drivers are up to date, that was the first thing I checked.
Does anyone have any ideas as to what this problem might be, and any other things I can try to fix it? Please let me know if I can provide any more information. I'm not very tech savvy, so I apologize if I left out something obvious.

This issue occurs can be related to the Codec or Hardware Acceleration of Flash.
We can try to fix the issue from these two aspects at this time.
How do I find a codec?
How do I disable or enable hardware acceleration?
