How To Fix Samsung Galaxy Note 9 Cannot Stream Videos

Problem: I just received a replacement phone from Verizon. It is a Note 9. I can not stream videos. It constantly pauses after 5-10 sec and I have to hit play again. This is when I am streaming YouTube TV or FB videos. When I cast the videos to my tv all is fine. When I play netflix, the video will keep playing but the pause button shows on the screen every 10 seconds or so. I have tried reinstalling everything. Is there a setting I need to change? You guys are my heros if you can help me fix this!

Solution: The first thing that you will need to do in this case is to make sure that your phone is running on the latest software version. If a software update is available then I suggest that you install it.

Sometimes issues such as this are caused by connectivity problems. To check if this is the case it is best to connect your phone to a different Wi-Fi network then check if the problem still occurs. If it doesn’t then you will need to troubleshoot your home router or contact your Internet service provider.

Check if the issue occurs when the phone is running in Safe Mode

Backup your phone data then do a factory reset

This is the last troubleshooting step that you should perform. This procedure will revert the phone back to its original factory condition which should fix the problem if it is caused by a software glitch.

  • Turn off your Note 9 by pressing and holding the Power button.
  • Press and hold the Bixby, Volume Up and Power buttons together until you see the screen boot up.
  • Once you see the Samsung logo, let go of the Power and Bixby button, but keep holding the Volume Up button until the Recovery Mode screen shows up.
  • Use the Volume Down button to navigate to the Wipe data/Factory reset option, and then use the Power button to select the option.
  • Then select the Yes option on next screen. The Factory reset process will begin and progress will be shown at the bottom of the screen.
