I assume, from your post, that this is only with on-line media.

Internet connection and speeds or congestion can cause what you are hearing. I have a high speed cable line (80 Mb/sec) and occasionally I get buffering on youtube. The originating server can cause this too.

Run a speed test and see what you come up with.
