I am retrying up to 10 times during that "attempting to initialize" dialog, so I'm not sure where the difference is between the explicit retry and the automatic retry other than the inherent delay introduced by you having to select the button.
Oh, I didn't know that you were doing all those retries during (or do you mean after?) the initialize. (But are you talking about initializing
retries, or video loading
retries?) In any event, like I said, the frequent times one does get the error during video loading after the initialize, one manual retry usually is successful. Did you understand me to be requesting one-only video loading retry after a video loading failure following the initialize that gives rise to the video loading error dialog? ... Here is where I saw you talk about this issue:

...Unfortunately, initialization can take up to a minute, and sometimes (most times?) still fails initially, so a retry is necessary.

2) ...the retry in that intermediary screen seems "weaker" than starting play from the main screen... the retry often fails when an explicit play will work.)
so as above, I have no idea what the difference could be there. Bizarre...
It is? OK, then I think I might know what's going on: You know how when you're surfing the web, and you can click a link with very sluggish response, but if you just click it again, it'll promptly load? I think it's a DNS hiccup thing. So, similarly, what I thought I was experiencing was actually the Retry in the error dialog being unresponsive & failing, but going back to the video's main screen and clicking what you say is exactly the same retry (Play) there is like the second click that responds better and thus succeeds. (So my observation reflected a coincidence.) (You are
going through DNS, right?) So there's nothing to be done.
Edit: I just now had a video crap-out, and I hit the error dialog's "Retry" ten times in a row and it just kept failing and presenting the error dialog again & again, but when I backed-out to the video's main screen and hit "Play," it promptly resumed the very first time. This is what I was talking about, and why I was surprised to hear you say that they both are the same thing.
