Edit: The issue appears to be present system wide. Any streaming video (not sure if audio streams are affected, I'll assume they are and generalize to all streams) that has been buffered will be dumped when the screen is turned off on the device.

Reproducible by buffering any video for any duration then locking/turning off the screen. The buffered video will be dumped leaving you waiting for it to buffer the same data yet again.
Any idea how to circumvent this aside from never letting the screen timeout? I'm using mobile data most of the time and it's down right infuriating when I'm constantly downloading the same data again and again running up my bill due to this issue.

Device: Verizon Galaxy Note 2 (sch-i605)
ROM: Sophisticated 3 (4.3) with included kernel
(Am I missing important details? Let me know! This is my first post here)

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
