Sound is skipping

  1. Hello All,
    Let me start by describing my setup. I have my desktop computer connected to my ultra 4k tv via a 20 ft hdmi cable. A couple of days ago I noticed that when I play a video file from my computer the sound is skipping and popping. However, when I play a pc game on the tv using the same setup the sound is fine. When I watch the same file on my computer it works perfectly, so I know it isn't the video file. Also, I tried a different hdmi cable and the problem persists, so I know it isn't the cable. Prior to this new problem everything was working fine. I have reinstalled my video cards drivers, but this didn't fix the problem.

    My computer:
    msi motherboard
    processor: Intel core i5 - 3570K CPU @ 3.40GHz 3.40 GHz
    Installed memory (RAM): 16.0 GB
    System Type: 64 - bit operating system (windows 7 ultimate)
    display adapter: Nvidia GeForce GTX 970

    My TV:
    Vizio 43" ultra 4k tv

    Anyone have any idea what could be causing this?

    Have you tried to hook it up to another television via the HDMI cable and see if the problem persists? What program (software) do you use to watch the videos? I personally like VLC media player, because you can adjust the sound timing if needed.
