Since last week I had a really strange issue. Please note that before everything worked fine.

When I connect/enable my Bluetooth headphones everything HTML5 enabled like Spotify Soundcloud Youtube stops working. When I disable/disconnect the Bluetooth headphone it starts playing immediately.

  • Did you figure out what was causing this issue? I am having a similar problem, solved by this. But I cant do this every day – alsco77 Dec 7 '18 at 2:17

i disabled the mic input and the mode was set to HSP and switched that back to A2DP and my videos immediately started to play again


In Sound Settings, Output, select the Headset (bluetooth accessory) in the table on the left and change the mode to "Headset Head Unit (HSP/HFP)" and then change it to "High Fidelity Playback (A2DP Sink)" (even if it was already in this mode).

If bluetooth fails to pair when you fiddle with it, turn the bluetooth off and on in Bluetooth Settings.


In the Bluetooth settings for the device, only allow Media, not Phone, and it will work.
