Vivaldi freezing when watching youtube?

  • Hey, I recently decided to install Vivaldi to check if this was a browser i could enjoy using. So far the user experience have been great! But now i have noticed that it freezes a lot when i try to watch YouTube for example. (It looks like it buffers completely fine) I don't have this issue with Chrome, Firefox or Edge... Is this a common problem for Vivaldi? Is there a way to make the performance better/ fix the problem?

    I downloaded Vivaldi 26th.Sep from so i think it's the latest version.
    90% off all the Youtube films are stuttering / freezing. my bandwidth is 100Mbps up and 50Mbps down so that shouldn't be the problem.
    I am using Windows 10 Home (updated regurarly wiith windows update)
    I got 2x GTX970's in SLI as my GPU's and an Intel Core I7-3820CPU 3.6GHz as my CPU
    I update my drivers all the time. Driver Version are:
    372.90 for my GPU's
    10.0.14393.0 for my CPU
