When I play a video from my Photos app on my iMac. it periodically freezes and the audio continues for a couple of seconds then stops. In about 5 seconds the frozen video starts up again and fast forward's for 3 seconds and then everything plays normall for another 30-40 seconds when the abnormal behavior repeats itself. This also happens with Quick Time screen recordings. Not sure if this is related but many videos at websites turn blank white with a gray progress bar on the bottom with no audio, when I press the play arrow, I am running Sierra 10.12.1. Thanks Forummers

More information regarding your iMac is needed?

What model and year?
Processor?
Ram?
Drive space available?

Also, are the files on the internal drive or are they on an external drive?

How large are the video files? Your iMac should be able to handle the videos. Have you tried running Disk Utility > First Aid on the drive?
