Antennapod cannot continue playback after internet loss

App version: 2.6.1 (50eee8848) from F-Droid

Android version: 7.1.2 ( rom 0.19)

Device model:
LG Nexus 5

Expected behaviour:
When the app loses internet connection, the playback stops, but when the connection is established again, after some buffering it continues playback.

Current behaviour:
When the internet connection is restored, the apps shows buffering (the blue light is circling the play/pause button), but rarely continues the playback. It is buffering for minutes, the app needs to be force stopped and restarted for the playback to continue.

First occurred: (e.g. about x days/weeks ago)
This has been happening since weeks.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Start playback (stream)
  2. Phone loses internet connection
  3. The playback stops
  4. Internet connection is restored
  5. The app cannot resume the playback, but is buffering forever

Environment: (Settings you have changed (e.g. Auto Download). “Unusual” devices you use (e.g. Bluetooth headphones). Did you select another media player?)
I haven’t changed anything.

This happens to me a lot using AntennaPod in the car with Android Auto.
