>> I noticed some very similar behavior to what you are seeing but only when acceleratedRendering is on. I could hear audio but the video was just white. Turning off acceleratedRendering fixed the issue for me. I found a way to resolve the issue in the engine. If anyone is interested it has to do with how the main surface view and the video surface view are layered. The same issue appears to impact the camera control and likely (untested yet) impacts the barcode scanner widget. I’m not sure if what you are seeing is related if acceleratedRendering is not true.

If you would like to create a recipe stack to demonstrate your issue that would be helpful too. Perhaps attach to your own bug report and then we can determine if it’s a duplicate of what I’m seeing or something else.

Hi Jacque

Good news! This is not a bug!

As of Android 9 clear text HTTP is disabled by default. This is much like the ATS restrictions on iOS. We probably need to add a way to configure this in the standalone builder for Android like we do for iOS even though it’s not advisable.

Changing your video url to https resoled the issue.
