Videos slow and choppy - Audio just fine

I have various sites that I view videos on, and they're all extremely slow and/or chopping.  The audio is great, however, and though the video will freeze and skip and lag, the audio keeps moving right along.  I have cleared the cache, all temp files, cleaned the harddrive, done a disk defrag.... Nothing seems to affect the issue so far.  Flash is also current.

 

Running Google Chrome right now.  I ran a test on IE, and the videos were even worse.  Any ideas?

Choppy playback can be related to your computer's performance.

Slow Proc, lack of memory, general lack of free resources.

Cleaning the registry can help things also.

Thanks - but I've taken care of all those things.  I'm not lacking resources.  Any other ideas?
