Playback stops a few seconds after resuming from paused.

When I pause a song and then resume playback (I'm using my mac keyboard media keys), the song stops playing a few seconds later and I have to skip to the next/previous song to get it to work. Pausing and then playing again doesn't seem to fix the problem.

    Hi Harry,

    Are you using some other app which use media keys other than iTunes ?
    Are you using Grooveshark with the html5 interface or the standard one ?

    Hi everybody,

    does it happen only using the media keys ?

    mine does this regardless of whether i skip or not. It hangs when going to the next track sometimes and i have to skip to get it going again (i primarily use the media keys though) . Doesn't do it when I'm using the normal browser version of grooveshark.

    Hi Micheal,

    I've tried to simulate your issue without success, but what happen to me is the html5 interface seams ( somehow ) slower to load songs then the regular one and probably even slower on certain network conditions.

    Are you experiencing the same issues on the non-html5 interface ?

    I can't run the flash version as I have a debug version of flash for work and it doesn't work with it. All I've been doing is running the HTML 5 interface and played a playlist I created.
