the problem seems to have gone away now.
but i while i had that problem i tried this:
the video usually plays automatically. when it does, i noticed that it fails to buffer and just plays immediately. when i "beat the video to the punch" by loading the page and immediately pausing the video before it even plays, the video buffers a little better, but still hits a bump later on.
i also noticed that, even while paused, the buffering stops after reaching a reasonable distance from the playhead. this is new. it used to be, i could pause a video and wait for it to load completely.
