2006...I suppose Intel chipsets from time do not help with video 
decoding...but your laptop should be able to play less strenuous 
encodings like mpeg. How about also trying something like Chromium (the 
game) and see whether you get that quarter second pause.

It would be nice to also run 'vmstat 1' in a terminal and see whether 
the numbers will correlate to the pauses or not. If the last number (wa 
column) shoots from 0 to some high number, then we can also try using 
atop to see if we can find a culprit that always shows up with you get 
the pause.
