When videos rendered on PrE 2018 to MP4 and uploaded toYouTube are played from YouTube on a Windows 10 computer the video freezesevery few seconds, but the sound plays on (so the video ends a long time afterthe audio does).

 This problem only exists for the two latest videos I haveuploaded. All my PrE-rendered videos uploaded to YouTube before 28thFebruary 2018 playback without problem. The problem occurs on two desktops anda laptop that I have tested so far (all Windows 10).

 As far as I can tell no updates have been made to Windows 10nor PrE 2018 between when uploaded videos playback OK and when the problemstarted occurring. Also, I use the same rendering settings for all videos whichare to go on YouTube (from a named custom set of settings, so always identical).

 The problem does not occur when viewing these recent YouTubevideos on other devices such as Android phone and internet TV. Also, some otherpeople’s videos uploaded after 28th February 2018 can be viewed onWindows 10 without problems.

 Questions:

  1. Has anyone else had this problem start recently (with videosrendered on PrE and uploaded to YouTube)?
  2. Has YouTube changed the way it processes uploaded videos orplays them back in the last week or so?
  3. Any suggestions as to how to stop this problem happening?

PS: forgot to mention: the MP4 video itself plays OK on Windows 10 ("Films & TV" app). The problem arises after this has been uploaded to YouTube and is played back on YouTube.

Update: problem seems to have sorted itself now. First one video and then, a day of so later, the other video, started playing normally. Further new content uploaded also seems to play OK now.
