After pressing the play button in the app, episodes will play, but stop and start every second. Obviously, the app is mostly useless since this behavior started. UPDATE: This bug seems to result when other apps receive notifications during playback and is not likely bluetooth related. I only really listen to Player.FM and Spotify, but the Spotify app has not exhibited the bug.
The Play button seems to dominate during this time. As a result, it is extremely difficult to stop the buggy playing at all. Turns out though, if I can press the Pause button during its short appearance window, the episode will sometimes play normally.
ADDED details: Stopping the playback during this bug is near impossible though. Even closing the app through the OS will not stop the audio playback, at least when I’m using bluetooth headphones.
Seems different than the Widget play button issue.
