The video pauses alone from time to time
The video pauses alone from time to time. I really dont know why, It does not have a pattern. I have to press F5 a couple times until it stops.
This has been happening to me too, but only when trying to watch on source quality. My internet connection is 55mbps down, and I never used to have this problem.
I tried disabling all extensions, restarting Chrome, my computer, etc, but nothing helped. I turned off Chrome's "use hardware acceleration" option, and that didn't help at all either.
Using Google Chrome. Trying to watch a live stream. Buffer fills, still frame shows, spinner stops spinning...but instead of playing the stream, the play arrow is shown again. I click that, it discards the buffer, starts buffering again...and displays the play arrow instead of playing the stream again. This pattern repeats endlessly. Just now I clicked the play arrow 13 times, waited for the buffer to fill each time, but the video just never PLAYS.
It used to work fine.

Started happening for me today too. It would also sometimes unpause a paused stream/archive.
