Chrome version: Version 30.0.1599.69 m
Adblock version: 2.6.8

hi there,

got a problem with youtube videos only, where the player starts, but after a couple of seconds (seems random) the video just stops. No errors not warnings just nothing. Private Mode/Disabling adblock let me continue with the videos (doesnt matter which). Is there a known workaround for that? :(

    Hello Ares,

    Very strange issue! We didn't get any reports of it yet. Please try to reinstall AdBlock. Let us know how it goes afterwards.

    Kind Regards,
    Jérémy Keusters

    Same problem here. Started recently. Plays a minute or so, the the video freezes; cannot operate the scroll bar to re-buffer, have to refresh the page.

    Will try reinstalling.

    Well guys heres an "update":
    Yesterday I had a funny thing about that, because everything worked until 23:00, then for 30 minutes it didnt even worked in privacy mode and then again everything worked again.
    I disabled every addon/tool/whatever and it does not seem to take affect.
    So I doubt the problem is cause by Adblock (like I thought in the first act)

    We hope to get a fix very soon.
