Re: YouTube Playback Stops

@Lesjoe1 A few questions here to see what may be occurring. 

- Which model of Roku device is this issue occurring on for you? Is this a Roku Express or a Roku TV? 

- Have you removed the YouTube channel from the Roku home screen, then restarted your device from Settings>System>(Power - for Roku TVs)>System restart, and reinstalled the YouTube channel again from there? 

- Has this happened with any other channel that you stream? 

With more information, we can continue looking into this issue from there.

Re: YouTube Playback Stops

@RokuTannerD My Roku Ultra does this too. Prior to that, my Roku 3 did the same thing. No, rebooting and/or deleting/reinstalling the app does not work. I just recently got the Roku Ultra to see if that would solve the problem. Back on my Roku 3, one day this symptom just started and consistently never stopped. Every night my YouTube play will stop now. Same with Spotify. I can no longer reliably use my Roku to play music while I sleep.

Re: YouTube Playback Stops

Me too. I am trying to watch a series on channel 4 and all of a sudden it will go back to the homepage so I have to restart channel 4 and resume but it always resumes further back than where I am up to

Hey @Freddie29

Thanks for the post.

For clarification, are you experiencing the issue on YouTube as this thread's title suggests or on a different channel? Could you tell us the exact name of that channel?

With more information, we can assist you further.

All the best,
