I'm having the same problem. Tried multiple bitrates, updating to 1.0.7 and re-installing the app on my TV. Any tips?

What bitrates did you try?

Content will play fine for a while, then it starts playing/pausing constantly. It looks like it’s playing for 1 second and then buffering for 1 second, without ever catching up.

This happens on every bitrate I tried; 10mbps (my usual bitrate) plays solid for a few seconds before the freezing starts, I took it down to 480p 420kbps and it played solid for a few minutes before the freezing started.

Ruling out my internet connection/server as the problem, everything still works fine at 10mbps on my phone and laptop.

I’ll give that a try and report back. I’m currently plugged in via Ethernet so not sure if it will help.

Tried restarting the TV, doing a factory reset, re-installing the app, switching between ethernet and wifi and still no luck. Speed test on the tv is showing normal speeds and other apps like Netflix are working perfectly... What's next?

Tried some content with a maximum bitrate of 4mbps - works fine. Other content with a higher native bitrate doesn’t work, even when set to 4mbps

Ok then it sounds to me like something under 4mbps is going to be the highest value you'll want to utilize.
