Thumbs-Up problem using "Members Only" option

Having an odd problem. I am moderating Watch Parties on my ipad, using either a Chrome or Safari browser. The problem occurs whenever I am having a “private” watch party. I have the “Members Only” option selected. In order to click the “thumbs up” to let someone watch it seems I often must enlarge their profile icon, then after clicking “thumbs-up” the icon will stay enlarged blocking the video and does not go back down to the bottom where the other watchers are. If I close my browser and re-open it the icon is now at the bottom but the video starts over on my end and is way out of sync with everyone else. It seems my only option is to not use an ipad or not use the private setting. Any ideas? Thanks!
