Anyone noticed video files slow to load/open? it takes me about 25 to 30 seconds for a video to play no matter the player I use. I think it might have something to do with the recent update. I am referring to video files I already have on my PC and not about streaming videos online, think my problem is with Windows Explorer because that's usually where I open video files from. I have no issues opening files within a player or something else other than Windows Explorer, video files load/play without any problems.

I assume you have you checked the buffering. what app/program are you using in particular and which build of Windows are you using? I also assume you have been through settings etc.

Sorry, I didn't mention this in my original post, but I was referring to video files I already have on my PC and not streaming video files online.
