When I watching a video and if I pause the video and play again sometimes I'm getting an error "An error occurred please try again later" with the black background and some error code. I got this error with Firefox and chrome.

How often does it occur, and does refreshing the page fix the issue?

I have had the same problem couple of months back and yes it is very annoying. When I figured out the issue it was nothing with my browsers but was the internet connectivity issue. There might be lots of reasons for the connectivity failures like the one that DNS requests sometimes takes a time to send or receive to the server and back to your computer. You might contact your ISP to fix the issue or else you should change your internet provider.
