YouTube Videos with Copyrighted Music Stutter On Playback

Making moves

I regularly upload videos to my YouTube channel. These are event videos that often include copyrighted, popular music that has been approved for use on YouTube by the rights holders. I noticed a couple of weeks ago, that these videos would stop, skip, and stutter on playback within the first 30 seconds or so. Sometimes they would freeze entirely. I have found that this happens on both Windows 10 and Mac OS Sonoma. It does not happen in Chrome.

I did not see this happen with officially licensed music videos, but did see it with video from another creator who often uses copyrighted music. I suspect the issue has something to do with rights management in the browser. So I am reporting the problem here.
