Acer Nitro 5 - Help with youtube videos

*Sorry if the category is wrong
For some reason, every time I watch a YouTube video, the videos stutter. I've tried just restarting my laptop, updating my drivers, and uninstalling things that apparently cause this to happen, but nothing has worked. Any ideas as to what I should do? Is there anything I can do?
Any help is appreciated.
My Laptop is the Acer Nitro 5

    Care to share your model number? Nitro 5 has different variants.

    By model number I meant like for my Predator Helios 300, it is G3-572. Your Nitro 5 can't be identified like this.

    Try updating your Intel HD Graphics driver through Device Manager by choosing to update online. Do you watch them in Edge?

    I know, but am trying to help other Acer products users as well, only the generic problems.

    Try what I said. Edge plays them out nicely for me. Also, try to watch videos in other browsers as well to rule out hardware issue.

    I also tried different browsers. The stuttering does not happen in them, so I guess the problem lies with edge.

    If you like Edge, then try using Edge Chromium Beta build. I use Dev build and have made it my new default browser.

    https://www.microsoftedgeinsider.com/en-in/ Download the beta one which is more stable. It will take your Edge data when you sign in with your Microsoft Account.
