Buffering every 5 minutes
This is occurring to me as well. Can you please fix this?
The developers don't follow the forums anymore. We are notify support directly. I just that right now and hope a solution will come. I'll share whatever they say here, however if anyone else has emailed them already and got a response, I and the others would love to hear what was said. Thanks! :)
For me, the problem is with Malwarebytes. I had to add exclusion for application Videostream for Google Chromecast. Before that, I tried to turn off my anti-virus Avast, the free version, and that didn't fix it so Avast is not the problem. I also checked my Windows firewall and Videostream is already allowed through firewall.
I found the location of Videostream by right-clicking on the app icon, them go to "more" then "Open file location." Open Malwarebytes, go to Settings, then Exclusions, then Add Exclusion, then choose Exclude an Application that Connects to the Internet, and then browse to the location to select Videostream.
That is it. Hope it works for you all.
Looks like a bug... keep on buffering every 5-10 min even with small files.
Any feedback from videostream team?
ahmeha is absolutely right! Quit Malwarebytes and it started working fine! No more buffering. Thanks ahmeha!
@billgrove unfortunately I don't have malwarebytes! :(
Removed Avast and still buffering.
Airflow is an alternative that is not buffering every 5 minutes, unfortunately it's not a canadian product.
@jonathan-sun finally fixed! Thank you so much!!!
@jonathan-sun Nope, still going on today, and apparenly won't open the videostream in chrome anymore.
Sorry for necroing this post, but this issue is still alive.
Thanks @jonathan-sun, the native app fixed it for me too :D
Also, thanks to the ~6 f*ing Canadians who make this AWESOME product basically for free (apart from subs). As a dev, I understand how much of a labour of love this kind of thing is. BIG love!

I'm having the exact same problem. Have been using video stream and chromecast for over a year with no issues. This change just started happening yesterday. Buffer at random long intervals, and auto-playing itself after a bit of a pause
