    Live stream keeps dropping
    Live streams continually drop, rarely recover w\o me refreshing the browser. I tried the apps too, but that didn't help. Applies to wifi and data connections. Phone company reset the service not help. I've twice done a factory data reset, which didn't fix it. Only other apps I've installed are blue mail and goodev volume booster and zoom.

    Sometimes that can interfere, but since you said no then no worries there , what about any power saving mode? Phone ? Maybe take those apps out of power save

    How good is your network connection on mobile data and on WiFi? If it is a weak signal it may buffer or disconnect.

    That's a fairly old phone with underpowered specs, so I wonder if that's figuring into it. Can you try it in Safe Mode? https://www.t-mobile.com/support/dev...-mode-zte-zmax. You should still be able to use your browser in Safe Mode.

    All using chrome

    youtube
    fair.org
    Ttbook
    Wnycstudios
    Hiddenbrain at podcasts.apple.com...
    All ok, and some others ok too. They do drop once in a while, but recover w\o me missing anything. However
    Wmnf
    Wusf
    Bbc all drop and dont recover.

    Tried the wmnf, wusf, bbc apps and they too drop and dont recover.

    App or chrome, i need refresh chrome to continue listening...until it happens again. Often dont last 5 minutes before it drops.

    Happens wifi and happens using phone data.

    Only happens after the display goes sleep.

    Ideas ?

    I merged your last post into your original thread.

    Did you already try Safe Mode as I previously suggested?

    You say this happens only after the display goes to sleep -- does this mean that you want to listen to the stream through the browser while the screen is off? Browsers often don't stay awake when the screen times out. That's either due to how the browser is coded, or how the phone's firmware is coded. A dedicated app for a particular type of streaming media will be more likely to stay awake when the screen is asleep.

    I agree with this through browser not ideal
