2 casting issues with Youtube, start lag and Do you want to play this video?

ISSUE 1: for some time when I cast YouTube from my iPad Pro to Virgin V6

there is an approximately a 45sec pause from the time the iPad says "playing on Virgin V6" 

until the time it actually played on the TV...

The V6 YouTube app will launch... and then sit there with a variety of YouTubes on screen.  Then suddenly after the 45sec wait, the app will acknowledge the connection and the video will play. Next video plays fine BTW, its only the first time.

It has done this for months and I got used to it, and suddenly it stopped and would play immediately (so I figured it was fixed)   ....but that lag has returned again 🤔

 

ISSUE 2: has only occurred recently.

The very first time I cast YouTube from my iPad Pro to Virgin V6

I now get a confirmation request from the V6 App

"Do you want to play this video?"  ...to which I have to confirm OK with the remote

first world problem, but irritating all the same. 🤔

It didn't used to do it, so something changed (but I don't know if thats Virgin, YouTube or Apple)

I'm amazed you would wait 45 seconds for the YouTube app to play. Why aren't you using the V6 remote?

easier to cast from iPad than scrolling around the screen via remote...

I also don't want my YouTube account logged in on the shared TV

As mentioned the initial start lag did go away, but it has returned

...and I noticed yesterday that the first time lag doesn't occur when I cast from my Google phone
