Google Chrome is not playing HD videos on YouTube

I am having trouble playing 1080p and 1440p vidoes on YouTube using Google Chrome. HD Videos lag and drop so many frames to the point where the videos are hard to watch but the same videos are playing smoothly on Internet Explorer. I tried emptying my cache and reinstalling Flash player but nothing changed.
The computer I'm using is an 3rd Gen i7, HD Graphics 4000, 8GB Ram, 2.00GHz. The internet connection is fine because it works on IE.
How can I solve this problem because I do not want to use IE since I do everything else in Chrome.

Sorry to say this, but I notice the same exact thing. I am almost certain it is because IE has much better flash video and java abilities. It flies with all things flash and java in my experience. Chrome seems to lag. I've tried all the Chrome quick fixes to speed it up, but it was never as quick as IE. Right now, I have separate links for Chrome where I do my main stuff, but IE for other stuff that it's much quicker with. Just add YouTube to the IE quick link bar and your all set. Sorry this might not have been the answer you were looking for, but I believe it is the truth.

Thank you soughtseven1035. I'm still trying to find a way to make it work but I'll use IE for now like you suggested.
