For some reason, whenever I try to stream a video on my Galaxy S3 (running the latest stable Cyanogenmod 10) it takes up to 1 minute before it eventually starts playing. The exact same video on my iPad will load instantly on the exact same connection.

Does anyone please know why this is? I usually play videos through the default app, 'Gallery' I think it is, but I have tried other players too (ie MX Player and Hubi) and get the same problem.

Thanks!

Their could be a number of possible problems such as the format of the video; either the phones hardware or Cyanogenmod 10 may not support the format in which the video is in. I believe the video format is most likely the case because as you describe:

So check the video format of the videos in which you view. In this link, they describe the possible video formats that the Galaxy S3 can play. If the video is not in the correct format, I suggest trying to convert the video files localy on your PC.

Also another solution may be to re-image the phone to possibly earlier version of Cyanogenmod could possibly work.

Hope this helps.

  • Thank you, it happens across many different sites though in what I believe are different formats. The video does play eventually (sorry I didn't make that clear in the original post) it just takes ages to start. – Nick Mar 18 '14 at 14:46
  • @Nick That is quite alright, just be sure to edit the original post. – ToltarTheGreat Mar 18 '14 at 15:09
