Using a different browser seems to resolve it for me. So this seems to be a chrome-webplayer issue. (also please get rid of the recaptcha, it works awfully and really discourages from submitting bug reports)
i got the same issues. I can listen for like 2 hours and then it always stops at 9 seconds. I'm using Chrome Webplayer. I'm sure it's a recaptcha problem. I checked the network traffice once and the last calls before stopping were some calls associated with recaptcha. I will keep running the webplayer once again tomorrow and check this again.
