All Camv2 firmwares after 4.9.6.136 cause buffering on Echo Show

I think the latest one I tried was 4.9.6.160. After I connect to the camera from my Echo Show, the stream will show “buffering” about every 5 seconds. I rolled back each version until I got to 4.9.6.136. I don’t see the “buffering” message anymore.

I have run into buffering on my cell phone a few times recently. I used Alexa to display my V2 and then my WCO on my TV, via my Fire Stick, and the buffering was more prevalent.

What firmware are you using @isaiah58?

I’ve seen buffering occasionally on all my devices. The pattern of the buffering message is happening every couple seconds continuously after I upgrade to a firmware after 4.9.6.136. I’ve tried three firmware versions: 4.9.6.160, 4.9.6.156, and 4.9.6.144. All of those firmware updates cause continuous buffering for me.

The buffering is not an issue today. There were several updates the past 24 hours

I have the same issue…ever since I installed the Wyze Cameras this summer they are ALWAYS buffering. I am about to rip them out and try a different system. The cameras are almost UNUSABLE. The buffering occurs on my Echo Show vs 2 and my iPad and iPhone.
