Video playback stutters and makes a buzzing noise

My laptop has started to stutter when playing video from the internet. It does it on Skype, Youtube and Facebook videos. The screen freezes for a second or two and the sound stutters ddddddddddd.

I have checked the same video clips on my smartphone and all works fine through the same wifi. Any ideas what it could be.

It has taken me 5 days to sort out this problem. I have deleted programs, run diagnostic programs and done a defrag and clean up. Having searched the web I am not the only one with the problem. It would seem that Dell Support Assist and Dell Support Assist Agent were installed on my laptop without my knowledge on 12.Feb 2015. I have uninstalled both programs and this has resolved these issues.

Thanks PaulR. I checked and Dell support Assist was installed without my knowledge on my computer as well. Uninstalling them totally corrected the problem. Thank you very much.
