Player stops playing and starts episode at beginning every 20-45 seconds.

I also have this issue across both Linux and Windows on Chrome, but it is always almost exactly at the one minute point. Also the player seems to frequently lose it's position after pausing the player and I have to manually reassert it's play position and wait for the podcast to "re-download". It is not a podcast dependent issue as this happens across all my many subscriptions. Otherwise I think you guys are doing a great job and this is a great service!
I'm having the same problem on a samsung chromebook. After playing a few minutes the podcast halts, then goes back to the beginning and the place icon appears. Any help?

I'm also running into essentially this problem. I get a bit further - a few minutes - but then the player just freezes, and an attempt to toggle the "play/pause" just makes it restart from the beginning. Is there not a way that the player could be made more tolerant of loading times of the stream, and to perhaps re-request it if it notices that the connection has died? Or at least to continue from where it was up to, when it does freeze?
Since we are streaming podcasts, we rely on the quality of the source site. Sometimes the host of the podcast can be under heavy load or have a setting that makes streaming difficult, so if you have problems with podcasts stopping and restarting, you could try again later or, for the specific podcast temporarily try to download the podcast and use the local copy.
