Videos lag when gaming some games!

Hello everyone!

Recently i have come across a problem that is annoying the living daylight out of me. I'v been using a double monitor setup for years now, and usually like to watch movies and YouTube while I'm gaming.

Just recently I'v come across a problem: when I'm playing some games (specifically Destiny 2 and Assassins Creed: Origins) videos suffer from lag and freezes with the audio playing normally, with no performance impact on the games. The games run just fine.

This happens when I'm using Chrome, Firefox and VLC, but not in Edge or Internet Explorer.

The weird thing is that it happens in only the two games I mentioned above. Games like BF1, BF4, Crysis, Shadow of War ect all runs perfectly on high settings with video inn all applications running just as smooth as always.

I have tried to lower the graphics in the two games, but with no change what so ever.

I'v reinstalled windows, graphics driver, updated my BIOS, deactivated hardware acceleration, anything i could find online.

If i remember correctly, this did seem to happen right after i tried to install AI Suite 3, but it would not launch at first so i just decided to uninstall it. Dont know if that might have something to do with it, but its the best lead i have.

Please help! I know this may seem like a small problem, but a bit annoying since my build is less then a week old...
