I'm watching a playlist of 130 entries from start to finish - or so I thought - when after watching the 46th entry I'm thrown back to the first. I was expecting to see the 47th.

When I tap "next" I go to the beginning of the playlist. When I tap on the 47th entry I go to the 47th entry.

I don't understand why it works like this?

I have been trying to figure out the purpose and usage of YouTube playlists for a long time but it keeps eluding me with unexpected behavior.

Using Safari for iOS 10.
