There seems to be a visual bugs with this script. There is a buffering icon even while the video is playing. Pause & Unpausing fixes it, however, it does persist if you play/load the video in the background.

hmm, as i am running low on system resource, i just use another extensions that completely unload the buffer and the autoplay so nothing strange could have been seen from my side...

There is a mechanism in Youtube to check whether the video is smoothly playing or not.

As this script highly reduces the execution frequency of the timers, the mechanism would falsely believe there is a loss of connection.

I would recommend you to try https://greasyfork.org/scripts/431573-youtube-cpu-tamer-by-animationframe which is to strive for a balance between performance and energy impact.
