shiftysatchmo Paid mods. That could be the only reason why they would have their own launcher.

If that’s the case, they should just do the uplay thing where it’s part of the steam install and ignored entirely beyond that it exists. But fuck off with the driver update infection shit.

Was netflix ever really an issue or a joke I don’t know the reference to? My couch driver has a 980m so I haven’t watched netflix on amd hardware in a long ass time.

gord0 me and teh_g have a stuttering issue on Netflix that comes and goes every few updates.

In that case I recommend rolling back to last known good driver when that happens. Also test in both chrome and ff. Could also try turning of 3d acceleration in browser.

Another thing I do, is always run linux unless you need windows to do the thing you need to do. The current MESA driver (currently best linux driver for amd cards at the time of typing this) doesn’t seem to have the issue.

I basically stopped watching Netflix because of it. It is terrible. See here: https://community.amd.com/message/2830318

Another thing to try, is the new firefox they have available. I have not had any issues with youtube or Netflix with it. The older FF I was running into those issues, also, if updating, make sure to either do a clean install of the drivers or use DDU to remove the old driver before installing the new. Ran into several issues not clean installing the updates. Was fine after.

Tried a fresh install of Windows, different browsers, even the Netflix app.

teh_g Tried going between hardlined and wireless?

Btw in some cases, OC’s have been messing with stability with videos and some gaming. Maybe something to mess around with to see.

It isn’t really the playback, so much as making my system stutter. It isn’t bandwidth related.

The internet connection is independant of the video card problem.
