    My iPad 2 is randomly pausing when viewing videos on web pages and video podcasts. I can tell it is going to do it because it will skip a bit and then pause. It will play again for a few minutes after hitting play again and then do it again. During a one hour podcast yesterday, it did it 11 times and is quite annoying. Does anyone else have this problem? The nearest Apple store is 45 minutes away so I figured I would check here first.

    The easiest first way to try to solve ‘unexplained’ or ‘unusual’ problems with the iPad are:-

    Force the offending app to close. If you have iOS 4.2 or 4.3 double-press the ‘Home’ button to bring up the multi-task bar at the bottom of the screen. Press *and hold* any icon until they start to ‘jiggle’. Then tap the top left-hand corner of the app that you want to close. It will ‘disappear’ from the list. Don’t panic - you’ve not deleted it, just closed it. Now tap the Home screen and the multi-task bar will disappear. Re-open the iPad’s app and see if the problem has resolved itself. If not, it’s on to possible solution number two!!
    Restart the iPad. Press *and hold* the Power button. After a couple of seconds a slider control will appear asking you to confirm that you really want to switch the iPad off (this is all you’ll be doing). Slide the control to accept. A rotating white ‘bezel’ will appear in the iPad screen as the iPad powers down (it takes a few seconds, just like it would if you were shutting down your PC). When the screen of the iPad has gone completely blank, press *and hold* the Power button for a couple of seconds until the white Apple logo appears and the iPad starts to power up. This takes several seconds, so be patient. During the power up the automatic screen orientation function is disabled, so don’t panic. A few seconds before the power up is complete, the iPad plays a little ‘jingle’ and then you’re back to the Home screen. Restart the iPad’s app and see if the problem persists. Apple (and Forum members) recommend that you power down your iPad at least once a week, just as you might regularly completely switch off your PC. The normal procedure of just briefly pressing the Power button of the iPad merely puts it to ‘sleep’. Most Forum members have found that one of the two methods I’ve mentioned here cure a whole bunch of unexplained problems and are an easy first step to resolving most anything that happens on the iPad.

    I am having the same problem as OP only mine is happening when I play music as well. I tried both solutions mentioned above and my iPod app is still pausing randomly and skipping for just a moment right before it does. The first time it happens during a song it is normally in the first 20 seconds of so. It does happen once or twice more in the song after it starts back up. My closest apple store is a fair drive away and I would prefer to figure out a solution without worrying that a genius might erase all of my stuff. (inb4 I should back up my data anyway) I know I should I'm just kinda lazy.

    Side note: most of my music has been purchased and downloaded from iTunes on the iPad. Could be there was an error during downloading.
