That would likely indicate some type of local issue, as the devices all pull content from the same CDN (while the web browser player uses a different CDN).

by local do you mean network issue local to my house or local to my region/country?

Unless something really strange is happening, both devices would be streaming from the same server, so if one is streaming properly and the other isn't, there would have to be something amiss unique to that device or its connection. If all other streaming apps on it are behaving, that would point to there being an issue with the app itself or the data it caches.

The streams for the web player come from a different CDN, so it isn't that unusual to see those behaving while devices are problematic (or visa versa), but the only way I see in this case it could be anything past your local connection is if for some reason one device were fetching the video from a different server (on the same CDN) than the other.

If you have an android phone run this and see if WiFi is congested in your area. (assuming your connecting over WiFi)
