Terrible stuttering when casting a video and it goes to a scene of low-complexity
0
Problem: Youtube videos on chromecast suffer audio-stutter when the video has a scene of low-complexity such as a still image or simple animation.

When the video goes back to ordinary footage, the audio plays fine.
Videos that are only simple (such as kurzgesagt) stutter most of the way through in an unwatchable way.

All videos play back fine on laptop or phone directly. The problem only happens when cast to chromecast.
no other app is affected, netflix is fine whether viewing a film or something simple that causes stuttering on youtube.

I have factory reset everything, uninstalled, reinstalled etc...
Internet connection is blazing (I live in Tokyo and have fibre).
Wifi connection is fine (it has exclusive access to my 2.4Ghz signal).

I have seen many with this problem on forums but youtube ignores the problem.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

Thank you

I'm having the same exact issue and have been having this issue for at least a few months. Is it only the gen1 cc that is exhibiting this?

Exactly the same issue here... Any updates from Google?
Is it possible to downgrade the firmware? Thanks

I'm having the same issues. 50 or 60 fps stutters when using YouTube.
This does NOT happen with other apps. Twitch and Netflix does run well at 60fps without stutters. 
So the problem is not the Hardware, firmware nor the Internet connection.

Many people are affected, please see this thread on the Chromecast support forums : https://support.google.com/chromecast/thread/512366?hl=en

Why haven't anyone from Google responded to this issue? It's obvious that something is funked up!

I've been seeing the same thing for a while now. Kurzgesagt YouTube videos are a good example. I also see it when casting something like ASIP from Google play videos, since the opening frames od the show are a still image, the audio is very choppy!
