Sound Media Randomly Stops Playing

    Good day,

    After my 5.1.7 update, media playback will seemingly randomly pause until manually unpaused.
    This appears to affect any media playback, whether it's YouTube, podcasts (AntennaCast), Google Play Music, etc.. It also does not matter what audio device I'm using, whether Bluetooth, headphones, or phone speaker. It does not appear to happen when casting to ChromeCast.

    Please advise for fixes or workarounds.

    Thanks!

    I have none of these problems and using a chromecast audio as we speak, might be worth a fresh start if you can't sort it..

    Thanks for the response. As I mentioned in my original post, I do not have these issues when using Chromecast. Only when playing media locally.
    I'd rather wait to see if there's a less destructive solution before I take the nuclear option :) I'm actually considering using Lineage if I can't find any quick fix.

    Sometimes restarting the phone done all the tricks, makes sure all of your apps are updated from play store and the reboot your phone once.

    Well it seems as if shortly after I complained about this, the problem worked itself out.
    I haven't been able to replicate it in the past couple weeks.
