Yeah, I know.  Even now.   :-)

Not an issue I've noticed (I have an nVidia GFX card which does quite
nicely thank you).  I believe that video 'stuttering' and audio/video
getting out of sync are to be expected, esp. on older (read: slower)

Thankfully, we have a pretty fast 'net connection so buffers fill quite
quickly, meaning little in the way of delays.  Of course, that's subject
to the usual youtube load/DoS caveats.

I'd not heard of LBRY, but certainly looks worth trying out.

Aside, rhetorical:  why do most people seem to go to google (yt is
theirs, of course) for *everything*?
