If you're running chrome, try disabling hardware acceleration in the advanced options at the bottom of the settings page. No idea if it'll help but that's been a temp workaround for crashes on the new R9 cards for AMD.

Not sure how related this is but Firefox was causing the equivalent of a BSOD on my Mac until I disabled hardware acceleration in its settings (I'm using an NVidia card). So, sounds like a similar issue, at least.

Have you tried watching any other videos?

Atikmdag.sys BSOD's are one of the reasons I'm going NVIDIA next time. I've seen that error one too many times. The solution almost always involves uninstalling AMD drivers, running Driver Sweeper, and then re-installing them.

If you're using your gpu to do things that aren't actually optimised for it then it's gonna happen regardless of who you get your gpu from...

Tasks it's optimized for or not, it should never cause a blue screen. If that is persistently happening, then something is going wrong inside the driver.

Maybe @tsubomi might be able to speak to this.
