    Video and audio keep stuttering

    I have just done a fresh install of ubuntu 20.04 and everytime I play a video file with audio either online or from my hard drive every 30-40 the video and audio cuts out, really annoying as I never had this issue on windows 10

    Currently in my system I have ryzen 3, nvidia gtx 1050ti 4gb and 16gb ddr4 ram

    If anyone can help me please as I can't use ubuntu like this as I watch alot of media on my pc

    Have you installed the recommended nvidia driver by going to "Additional Drivers" from Applications at top left, (I think that's where you find it but I use Xubuntu not Ubuntu, so I'm not sure)?

    That in itself can be a problem, depending on how you did such experiments. Anyway, people are trying to help you here, please answer the pertinent questions to which I'll add a couple:
    1. How did you installed the Nvidia drivers?
    2. Is Seciure Boot disabled? If not why not?

    when I installed ubuntu it installed version 440 so I went on to additional hardware and worked down that list and tested each one that was listed
    not sure about secure boot, can this affect it?

    Re: Video and audio keep stuttering

    The automatically installed and newer version should be the best. Confirming it was installed and troubleshooting from there is what should have been done, not experimenting with older versions. Fortunately you did it with the Additional Drivers tool. Supposedly it removes all nvidia files before installing a different version, otherwise it would create problems with mismatched versions.

    Yes, Secure Boot is likely the problem. If enabled it prevents loading unsigned drivers even if correctly installed. Please check in UEFI settings and disable it if enabled. If the symptom persists then we need to check the nvidia driver installation status.

    I have tried to disable to secure boot but its grayed out and I can seem to find an option to change this
