    those are usually the ones shot with the phone itself. seems like the memory is getting overloaded and it cannot play the videos normally...

    Welcome to Android Central! If you copy those videos to your computer and then play them there, do they stop and start the same way?

    Try booting into Recovery and wiping the cache partition, which won't erase any personal data: Reset: Samsung Galaxy S 5 | T-Mobile Support

    I copied the videos to the computer and those played without any pauses.
    I also wiped the cache but no any changes to the video playing.

    Are the videos saving directly to an SD card? What happens if they save to Internal Storage? Do they play more smoothly from there?

    The thing is that those are saved to the internal memory I don't have an sd card in my phone.

    Is it possible to increase the cache partition size? Have anybody experienced such an issue with video playback?

    Check your settings. Look under Settings>Motions and Gestures>Mute/Pause>Smart Pause. If this is checked, any time it thinks you are looking away from the screen it will pause video. If this is checked, un-check it and see if that was the problem.

    I had the same issue from when I had updated my Pro 12.1 tablet. I went ahead and checked the settings and noticed that it would stop palying when it detects I was looking away. I unchecked the box and Hoooray, my videos are now playing with no pauses.

    I am sooo happy because I had called Samsung signature service and they wanted time to pay $190 to remotely access the device. or subscribe for $15 a month. I thought that was sooo unfair. I am happy now that it's resolved and I didn't have to pay a penny for that.

    Thanks once again
