    how are you? i find the rte live player constantly stalling. its on automatic viwing settings.

    is this common to stall so much?

    Unfortunately yes, I've never found it stable, constant buffering and I've an excellent broadband service. It tends to be better on my mobile phone but not great.

    The player was recently updated following a lot of critism but honestly, I've not seen much of an improvement.

    The non ad version works perfect, issue is the way it's designed to provide adverts first and content 2nd.

    It's been working perfectly for me for months now.

    I find it's great at playing advertisements but when it comes to playing actual content there's a lot of spinny-circle-itus and error messages about licenses.
