Have you just updated to Gotham with it? If so there is your problem, go back to your original version.

I'm having the same problem. It started about a week ago on Frodo, so I updated to Gotham and still the same problem. Any ideas on how to clear this up? I'm using it on a laptop, Windows. Never had any issues until a week ago.

Try disabling mediacodec in accelaration settings and/or libstagefright

Thank u that's done the trick I did both unticked arm, media & lib then selected software.
Question, although it is now fixed it is now really buffering like 1% every 2-3 mins - any ideas how to speed up. It's an andoid mx box through Ethernet with wifi turned off.
