Sound on Windows 10

The sound on Windows 10 on my computer is finicky. When I'm playing a media file through VLC media player the sound tends to get confused and fade in and out of my speakers, but not when playing sites like YouTube or Netflix. It is also in my headphones. I checked the drivers and they are all up to date, nothing is wrong with VLC. Anyone else run into this problem?
