How to reproduce

  1. Go to


Observed behaviour

There is a 5-30 second delay at the beginning of the video with only loading icon visible. After that the video starts normally.

This only happens while logged in Youtube with "new" account (Ex. Google+ account) not the old Youtube account.

Expected behaviour

Video should start without the delay.
