You have to use IE or Edge to have 1080p on modern/HTML5 Netflix anyway to be fair, if you're still using the old Silverlight based Netflix as opposed to HTML5 though that would explain the heavy CPU load and weird quirks.

Right you are! Good reply to my bit :P thank you.

As a side note - updating windows 10 from any build to a newer build does update IE and Edge so those are two browsers you can test easily. FF / Chrome / Safari / whatever else you would need to manually check....although I really don't see someone using a browser that outdated without a real purpose in mind. The chrome being version 37 is very old as an example.

Firefox can have weird issues / Edge is seemingly fine / Chrome is fine / Internet Explorer is 90% okay, sometimes weird issues.

Based on what you are saying it seems like an audio driver issue...but if it is only affecting Netflix then I'd suggest browser swapping and see if it persists. If it does then its a software issue with the audio driver OR windows 10 (whatever build you are on, that'd be good to know).

Right, well I'm watching Netflix through Chrome, and I'm on Version 71.0.3578.98.
Windows 10 Pro Build 1803. And as far as I've noticed this crackling and/or whenever for example a video you watch stutters, you hear the sound kinda being "dragged" out during that period, to then go back to the original sound once the video stutter is gone. Does this make any sense?...
As this has happened in both Netflix and watching Youtube in Chrome, as I'm basically just using Chrome.

Wanted to take this time to thank you both as well for taking your time out of your day to reply and helping me troubleshooting my issue(s).

That definitely sounds like either:

1. Chrome being the problem. I'd make sure you are signed in to your google account (if you use one) or backup your bookmarks in some manner :P then reset chrome or uninstall and reinstall it.

2. An audio driver being the problem, again same thing - uninstall and reinstall it OR check your motherboard manufacturer website for an updated driver for it and install that.

2a. If you using a soundcard then ignore the motherboard and check if there is an update for the soundcard driver.

Happy to help xD
