Limitations

The 'httpheaders' option for 'VideoPlayerController.network' and 'mixWithOthers' option of 'VideoPlayerOptions' will be silently ignored in Tizen platform.

This plugin has some limitations on TV:

  • Don't change playback speed at last 3 senconds when playing video, otherwise it will be failed.
  • If playing a video in a loop and change the playback speed(not 1.0) successfully, the playback speed will be recovered to 1.0 when play video again.
  • Don't use seekTo if playback speed isn't 1.0, seekTo doesn't work after change playback speed.
  • The video has some key frames, seekTo will set position to the key frame. For example, the video has key frame on 0 second and 3 second, actually the position is at 3 second when seek the position to 2 second.
