- Problem: Video constantly stutters and hitches, quality of playback drops, often replays the same few seconds of footage again, video stream freezes while audio continues, etc.
Can someone please explain why these video playback bugs on a critical video-focused web site have not been fixed in over a year?
The engineers are working on a ground-up rewrite of the video player at the moment. It's going to roll out to the new GS first and then hopefully hit GB sometime soon after that.
A quick little work-around I've found is to make the browser go fullscreen by hitting f11, then chosing the windowed option instead of fullscreen.
Edit: Using Chrome*
