Anyone having problems with you tube using a Mac?

Running safari 12.0.3 and about 2 months ago it just started acting up on you tube. Videos just stop randomly while playing and have to constantly refresh the video to get it to play again.. Then her times the videos just play all day, no issues. It's doesn't happen on Amazon prime or vimeo, just you tube.

I use the Brave browser on my Mac. This is the most secure browser (if there is such a thing) short of using TOR. I do have error messages which look like the browser blocker preventing ads from playing between actual videos but nothing like what you describe

I'm not on a Mac or windoz either, but I have had a few youtube videos stall out on me. Some have even been taken down as I was in the process of watching. A reload has solved some issues. I blame it partly on the internet provider as I've had other issues involving stalls and slow downs.

BTW, I'm on a Linux machine - if anyone cares.

I thought Macs were supposed to "just work"?

Except when they don't. Then yer screwed.
No opening the box and diddling with the guts on a mac.
