    Hey guys this 3.2 update has created more problems for me really or it could be just flash. But say I'm watching something on youtube I'll get a few minutes into the video then out of nowhere the steaming stops and I'll have to reload the whole page. As you know scrubbing is now harder to do since they updated youtube. As some as you would say why not use the youtube app I would but its not just youtube that has this problem, other sites give me this problem. I'm not sure if it has something to do with the wifi indicator being grey but it sure is pretty damn annoying. Btw out happens on other browsers not just stock.

    Just got my zoom a couple days ago. Upgraded to 3.2. Now I'm having the same exact issue. Can't stream any audio or video for more than 3 or 4 minutes before it cuts off. Also causes my browser to stop and be nonresponsive. Needing a fix asap before I lose patience

    I was just about to make this thread.

    It will play the video for no more than a minute and then it just stops, the video progression bar thing goes completely red, like the video is over with. I can't even press play again, I have to refresh the browser and start from where I left off.

    Same here, not to mention I can't launch youtube app from browser anymore. The screen grays out but the pop up asking me what do I want to open with never appears. I've never had any problems with the xoom until this update and renders it useless for my because that was my main reason for buying this tablet. Quick access to web videos with out having to pull out my laptop.

    What do you mean by change the channel?

    I'm curious as to what they changed to make this happen. I don't know if it's just me but it seems like they made it so that it continually buffers but suffers in quality (rather than just pausing until the buffer catches up). Videos work fine at school though so I think there is definitely a network related component to the problem, but I never had the problem before the update.

    Yesterday I was testing it out, had a video buffering and then went to a different tab and actually got a network error pop up, something about the connection timing out. That message was on the stock browser. But the video thing happens on Maxathon too, so it doesn't seem to be browser specific either.

    It really has nothing to do with internet connection, as I get the exact same issue trying to us Mobo Player to play video files saved on my Xoom. Constant stoppage of video files - through Netflix or local files. I've never had this issue before 3.2. This is UNACCEPTABLE, and needs to be fixed ASAP.

    I went into the settings on my router online and changed the wireless channel to 8 from 11. Its an old Belkin router that I've had for years. Ans whatever that did fixed my problems at home but also haven't tried to connect anywhere else.

    I've had this issue too. The screen grays and nothing happens. The tablet freezes and I have to restart it. I may not help this problem, but I found that shutting off instant search, both under browser settings and web search settings when you're on the Xoom, really helps browser performance. I haven't tried to see if that does the trick here.

    If you change the orientation the box will pop up asking what program you want to use. I made a thread a while ago saying that I thought we'd see 3.2.1 soon because 3.2 is buggy for Google's standards.

    I havent really streamed anything lately, except Netflix and that works fine. I think though after prolonged streaming that my connection gets hung up and I have to restart my Xoom. My bars go from blue to white while the rest of the house has internet.

    I've noticed issues with the browser becoming unresponsive when I'm typing my login info. It catches up, but you have to wait almost 30seconds sometimes. It's irritating.

    I have my router to set the channel automatically. So I know that wouldn't work for me. At this point I'm back on my laptop to watch videos because the xoom isnt cutting it at all. I'm not sure what to do to fix our problem.

    Despite what bbalack says, I'm finding this to be a router specific issue. I tried the same podcast at home and at school, it works perfectly fine at school. I never had a problem at home until I got the 3.2 update and did not even touch my router/modem between then, something changed within the update that is causing the problem. It happens across multiple sites, from audio to video, anything that streams.

    What router are you using? I'm using a DLink DGL 4500 gaming router. I wouldn't be able to try another router simply because I don't take my xoom outside of home.

    Have you tried to play a local video file? I get this issue regardless of if I'm playing a local video file, or if I'm streaming Netflix. I'm using Mobo Player for my local video files.

    Have you tried switching the channel from auto to any other number specifically, I know at first when mine wasnt working it was also set to auto with the (11) next to it like maybe that was the channel it was on for the time being. I suggest try to change it and see if it does anything, you can always swap right back if not

    Well my router was set to channel 11 and I changed it to 9. It didn't help but I figured out that when the wifi indicater is blue its streaming but as soon as it turns grey it stops. So what's making it turn grey I have no idea. I'll change the channel and try again.

    I tried changing channels, it was on auto before, but it didn't do anything. I just tried 11 and 10, I'll try..well...all of them when I'm actually at home. I'll try to load a video on it to SD too just to rule that out.

    And yeah, the wifi signal turns white when it stops streaming/buffering. What does that indicate? It's very frustrating, a huge loss in function over night with that update.

    I'll find the time to write them instead of just grieving on here though

    Damn that sucks. I tried all kinds of stuff with those router settings and that seemed to do the trick. Also tried connecting unsecure. Then go back in and set up the secure connection again. Some ppl said that did the trick for them as well
