I just recently started messing with Hackintosh after about a year or so and I'm having an issue that I don't think I have had before. Despite having gigabit internet and being able to do a speed test that clocks in over 800 Gbps, YouTube is very slow to load videos and I often get stuck buffering even at lower quality. Everything seems to load quickly over the internet, it's just YouTube that is painfully slow. I found an old thread where someone had a similar issue and fixed it by re-running MultiBeast and installing their drivers again, which did not help me.

macOS 10.13.6

May be a audio codec issue
Is issue also append when reading audio files with itunes ?
Is your audio over HDMI ?
One quick fix idea to see if better : addon kexts in EFI/clover/kexts/other - AppleALC+Lilu+NvidiaGraphicsFixup (Lilu is mandatory , see tonymacx86 download section to get last versions)
