Tube 1080p+ videos skipping frames/chunky playback
Playing a video on YouTube at 1080p or higher results in the video skipping frames despite the audio playing normally. This began in the 2015-03-04 nightly. Video resolutions of 720p and below all seem to play just fine.

I didn't really provide good STR in comment #0, so here they are: 1) Load a YouTube video 2) Set the quality to 1080p or higher 3) Allow the video to play for at least 15 seconds, as the skipped frames/chunky playback doesn't occur during the first 10-15 seconds. This reproduces about 90% of the time for me, so you may need to refresh the page once or twice if you aren't able to reproduce the first time. Switching back to 720p or lower will cause the video to play smoothly again.
Confirming, as I'm seeing this too, and in case it helps: * https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s0MDY9fl-IA is a good example URL * Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64; rv:39.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/39.0 * System specs: ** Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4770 CPU @ 3.40GHz 7.7 5.9 ** Memory (RAM) 32.0 GB 7.7 ** Graphics NVIDIA Quadro K600 6.8 ** Gaming graphics 17123 MB ** Total available graphics memory 6.8

Windows 7 / nVidia 660ti / 16 GB Ram / i5-2500k Pick a video like: - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gKyTrLRJPnM - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T2kOj-GFN8k Go fullscreen (makes it easier to see jankyness) After a short period of time frames start to get dropped. Audio playback is perfectly smooth but video is jerky and rubbish to look at.
My findings are: 1. New profile, start Firefox. 2. Navigate to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gKyTrLRJPnM 3. Check that the HTML5 video is being played (I have not tested Flash) 4. If not set automagically, set the playback quality to 1080p 5. In the seek bar at the bottom there should be a yellow mark at 10 seconds which indicates that an advert will be displayed at that time 6. Wait until the video has gone passed the 10 second mark Expected: - When advert is shown, video playback remains smooth Actual: - When advert is shown, video playback becomes janky and stutters as if many frames are not being rendered. Even if you dismiss the advert, the playback remains poor.

Stephen: MSE triage team wants to know if this issue can be reproduced on FF 37 as well?
(In reply to Marcia Knous [:marcia - use ni] from comment #5) > Stephen: MSE triage team wants to know if this issue can be reproduced on FF > 37 as well? I don't see the jankiness, but it'd be good for Steve England to weigh in, too. I do see crashes, which I filed separately as bug 1141813.

With Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:39.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/39.0 ID:20150310030235 CSet: 6686aacf006f the hitching has disappeared too, due to the back-out of bug 1131638 I guess.
Trevor - are you still seeing this problem since 1131638 relanded?
I am not seeing this after Bug 1131638 relanded. This bug can be closed.
