If I understand you correctly (you're kinda all over the place) you are running Fedora 28 from a VM (which one?) and getting freezes when playing videos. That's the jist of it, right?

Your first step in pairing down the problem, would be to log out of Gnome and click the "gear" icon below where you type in your user name and password. Select Gnome on X.org and try playing your videos again. This will determine if this is a problem with Wayland.

You should also take a peek at your log files (there is a log app under utilities) and they could point you in the right direction.
