Problems playing videos with www/webkit2-gtk3

Hi guys.
Does anybody use www/webkit2-gtk3 + multimedia/gstreamer1 + some browser here?
I'm using www/surf browser (on FreeBSD 12.1 STABLE) which leverages www/webkit2-gtk3 and multimedia/gstreamer1 as a backend. I'm able to watch YouTube videos just fine, but every time I change video quality or when I resume watching previously interrupted video or sometimes when I just move a slider, video just stops with a spinning circle. Are you able to watch Youtube videos, if so what's your experience?
