The highway where trucks work like electric train

In Lübeck, Germany, there's one of several eHighway test projects: overhead catenary wires, where electric trucks with pantographs can pull power directly from the grid. Thanks to everyone who gave so much time to make this video possible!

Yes, I acknowledge this. But it is the actual video which seems poorly transcoded. I downloaded the file and checked it with ffmpeg and VLC Media player and there the video also stops at minute 1:16 and then continues at minute 04:03 - audio is fine.

Is this something to do with Snotr's server, it seems very odd that the audio carries on while the video freezes, it has happened on serveral video's of late, interesting audio though. If they can do this for trucks, why not cars and does there actually need to be physical contact with the power cable, for the charge to be received?
