Why won’t YouTube videos play back properly?

Hello. I am experiencing a problem with YouTube in which the videos play and then enter this phase in which the screen turns green skips basically the rest of the video, playing these instantaneous choppy sounds while doing so.

I have tried multiple things:
1. Disabling Firewall.
2. Disabling Antivirus.
3. Enabling SPEEDbit Video Accelerator.
4. Disabling SPEEDbit Video Accelerator.
5. Updating graphics card.
6. Updating the flash plugin.
7. Using the html5 version of YouTube.
8. Disabling the built-in flash plugin and only enabling Macromedia.
9. Clearing up my computer.
10. Boosting my computer with IObit Game Booster.
11. Using my computer closer to my router.
12. Checking for any background tasks slowing my computer down.
13. Hardwiring my Internet connection directly to my computer via Ethernet.
14. Using other websites (it’s not just YouTube).
15. Switching to Mozilla Firefox.
16. Using Google Chrome.

If someone could help solve this issue, that would be great!

    sometime plugins on chrome can do this, check which one is responsible and remove it.

    Could be graphics driver or wrong settings in the browsers. Hardware acceleration may need to be turned off, which usually can be found by entering "about:config" in the address bar or "about:flags". Giving information on the processor, memory, and graphics version (integrated like Intel hd3000 or Radeon hd6310) would help us in offering you more suggestions.

    Try this:
    1) Right click on the youtube video or a flash video.
    2) Click Settings
    3) Under Display, DISABLE 'Enable hardware acceleration'
    4) Refresh the web page and it should work fine now.
