I forgot to mention that I have zero issues with playback in the same browser setup for archived / not live videos. I can also watch videos via apps like AppleTV just fine. Just live videos the past week or so have been giving me issues
For about the past week both East and West livestreams have been very hitchy for me, constantly switching between qualities when set to "Auto". I've been using the "Auto" setting for quite awhile since it usually provides the best quality (even more than "High") but something must've changed recently to make the setting very aggressive. I haven't tested other browsers, but this is happening to me on Firefox 65.0.2 (latest). This is on my gaming desktop on my gigabit fiber optic connection, so I don't believe PC or connection issues are the culprit.
EDIT: This is also happening on other qualities as well. I set the latest stream (Breaking Brad) to "High" and the stuttering / start & stop is happening there too.
Hey, I had submitted this report to the original author of the app but I noticed recently on the app's store page that CBSi has acquired it and become the developer.
My issue is that videos that are returned as search results aren't returned with their playback progress data, so each one starts from the beginning. This is very inconvenient when you know the exact video you want to play or the videos aren't part of a series/category. I've been resorting to AirPlay instead of using the app because of this. If any more details are needed I'd be happy to provide them!
