Thank you for reaching out! I bet this is an issue with the WebWorker wrapper. See the heading How can I fix videos if they fail to play or retrieve data in time? on the FAQ page. Does adjusting that setting according to those instructions fix the issue?

Setting the WebWorker wrapper to Medium won't work, but turning it Off works
