Media player has weird buffering problem when replaying
Open, Needs TriagePublic




  1. Play the media once with the player. Everything is fine.
  2. WITHOUT refreshing, play it more times. Every time it begins, there is a short "buffering" period that interrupts the sound. It's quite annoying for short media such as this example.

It can be reproduced on both Chrome and Firefox. If I use their native players, i.e. play this directly:

no such problem.

Any fix on this? It still exists and is quite annoying.

Or at least some comments/confirmation?

I think I hear what you're describing, it's intermittent for me in Chrome/Mac. Probably due to the not-so-great old player frontend code. Seems to be fixed in the new video.js-based player frontend:

Likely the fix will be to deploy the new player, which requires a little more development and testing, but is in the works.
