Twitch randomly stops video

Post by mrmajik45 »

When watching Twitch on chrome. It randomly will get stuck on a frame. I have to press pause and play for it to get unstuck. It's happened twice in under an hour.

Not sure if you have read this ( ... -on-linux/), but apparently twitch is somewhat of a resource hound when viewed from a browser. The site suggests alternative software (Gnome Twitch) for watching twitch streams. Perhaps, this is the same problem your experiencing.

Good Luck &
Hope This Helps
