The video of the launch shows what looks like an oscillation just before it cutoff. According to Elon Musk it appears there was a problem when the second stage tried to separate from the 1st stage. Musk said in statement afterwards that he, the company and its employees were 100% ready to go forward from this day and that Flight 4 will go ahead as planned.
