All videos play back slow on phone - android 6

Hi, I recently updated my xperia M4 to Android 6 Marshmallow, since then all videos play back slowly and there is no sound. It happens in Facebook and in video player, YouTube etc. I have tried with both Wi Fi and mobile data. I saw a different forum where they said to go in to developer settings and turn use awesome player on, but I don't have that option on my phone...

Hi @Lollybop,

 

Welcome to the community.

 

I am sorry to hear about this, it's quite strange.


Can you please start the phone in safe mode and see if there's any difference?

Hi CameronT

 

Thank you, when I tried Safe mode the videos played fine. When I re-started the phone not in safe mode they are still working. So... that was wierd lol.

 

I was going through my apps trying to remove ones that i didn't want to make more space. I disabled the playstation video app, I thought that could have been the reason? But when I enabled it the other day and it didn't make any difference, maybe this re-set it??

 

Thanks again!

@Lollybop,

 

Safe mode does remove the cache of some apps, so it could have just been that the cache was overloaded.

 

Either way I am happy to hear that it is working for you Slightly smiling Face
