Xperia Z5, Youtube/Netflix problem with bluetooth audio



I experience the following problem with my Xperia Z5 while playing YouTube and Netflix movies.

Everything works well when I watch youtube or netflix movies and use the internal speaker, through either Wi-Fi or LTE.

The problem arises when I make a Bluetooth connection with my hearing aid, from that moment on both YouTube and Netflix every few minutes freeze and had to buffer/load ?


The annoying thing is that when the video stops the audio signal falls away and when video resumes I will miss a piece of audio, because there is a slight delay in making the Bluetooth audio connection.


It seems that the phone has trouble with simultaneous playback of video and Bluetooth audio

Have already looked in the stamina settings whether I could change something, but no solutions there.


Perhaps that there are people here who can show the right direction where I could look for it.


Thank you in advance for thinking and contribute to a solution to this problem.


Kind regards,
