    Default Youtube vids stop downloading

    My youtube vids stop downloading after a minute or so of vid if I leave it to download. If I play the video it continues to download.

    Any ideas what is causing this?

    Dude mine does the exact same thing!!! Especially if I pause it and it idles for that period, and then when I click play it continues downloading, I think it's something Youtube setup in order to save on data usage.

    For me, often the videos just stop loading completely and the only way to continue watching is to refresh the whole page. Damn annoying, especially if the video starts with an ad.
