Every single video, literally EVERY video, will at some point pause itself during play. This is not because of poor internet speeds, it happens over 4G Data, WiFi, doesn't matter where I am or how I am connecting to the web, it WILL pause EVERY video without fail!
To say that this is really driving me nuts, is a galactic understatement!! This has been going on for months, with multiple application updates and device updates, and NEVER gets fixed. I've sene multiple posts around the web with people saying they're having the same issue, but no fix anywhere!
There are two things I've noticed so far when it pauses:
1) When you resume play, the sound is terrible. You'll go from a nice rich deep sound to a no-bass high-trebble phone-call sound quality. Maybe this is the very issue causing the pausing? Audio streaming?
2) If I pause the video myself, even if it's only for a few seconds, and resume play, then approximately 15-30seconds later it will pause itself and have the audio issue. Even if it has previously paused itself before I paused it, this will happen.
Clearly, there is a problem with the application itself. It would be nice to see a fix soon to this extremely annoying problem.
