Ubuntu – Videos hang / freeze for a few seconds on Ubuntu 18.04

18.04intelkernelvideo

Since the update to 18.04 every YouTube video and also locally played videos hang for a few seconds.

This can be temporarily "solved" by moving the mouse, but then it freezes again as the audio continues unaffected.

How can I fix this problem?
