Playback of what? With which player? All players? SMplayer? VLC? MPV? Kodi?

Show us what firmware is currently installed:
dpkg -l | grep mware
If firmware-linux-free is already installed, as it should be, unless there's
something in firmware-misc-nonfree and it is not installed, I don't think adding
any more firmware will help you. Realtek is only ever about network or sound.

Now that you've switched to Stretch we need to see /var/log/Xorg.0 again.
Send it to https://paste.debian.net/
