I've been entertaining myself by listening to lectures and documentaries on YouTube. My habit is to set the video going, and then occupy my eyes elsewhere (stitching, writing, etc.) Recently, two very odd things have started happening.
1) I launch a video and it goes immediately to the 'Other Recommendations' screen at the end. Dragging the time indicator back and forth doesn't seem to fix it, but if I 'threaten' to delete my YouTube cookies (literally, I go to the Tools/Options screen and select 'delete specific cookies' - I don't even get a chance to search for YouTube) the audio starts properly, and I can then drag the time indicator to get the video started.
2) During the hour-plus video, playback will randomly stop, and when I flip back to the tab, it shows that the video has reached the end (XX:XX out of XX:XX) at some timestamp less than the original length of Y:YY:YY. Selecting the video again will restart it at that random timestamp minus 10-20 seconds.
Any ideas? O_o
