expo-av, error with player

Please provide the following:

  1. SDK Version: 35
  2. Platforms(Android/iOS/web/all): Android

Hello, when i want to use expo-av, after launching few mp4, the player doesn’t work. I . get MediaCodec$CodecException: Error.
I use Galaxy tab s2 and Google 3a.

on Galaxy tab s2:
com.google.android.exoplayer2.g.b$a: Decoder init failed: OMX.qcom.video.decoder.avc, Format(1, null, null, video/avc, null, -1, null, [1920, 1080, -1.0], [-1, -1])

I think in ios, i have no error…

Any solution ?


Hey @sbe,

I relayed this internally. We’ll let you know when we find out more about the error. We may ask for some further information so stay tuned.

I’ve also been developing an app since few months and I’m also struggling with issue, couldn’t get to a valid solution yet. Sometimes the same video displays and works as expected but after reloading the app it sometimes disappears and leaves a blank view with the same error on console, could be due to issue in resolution & pixels adjustments. Please attend to it as it’s creating a roadblock in the process of uploading and playing videos on android
