  • Hello,

    Thanks for providing us with this item of feedback.

    We have not been able to repro this in our test environment so far. I was wondering if you would be willing to take a screencast and provide the output from a dxdiag (for hardware details) so that we could see the stuttering that happens on your computer.

    I grabbed a random streamer that was playing “No Man’s Sky” if it matters at all. Looking forward to working with you on this problem.

    All the best,
    The MS Edge Team

  • I see this problem as well, but even in fullscreen it’s laggy, but only on 1080p60. I think it has something to do with how Edge fetches the data. When I watch in Edge, my network download zigzags and in Firefox it is more constant. I have uploaded screenshots of the network data in both Firefox and Edge, so you can see the difference.
