REPRODUCIBILITY (% or how often): Everytime the apps are in use
BUILD ID = OS VERSION (Settings > About product): 220.127.116.11 (Verla)
HARDWARE (XA2, X10, X10 II, …): Xperia XA2 Ultra
UI LANGUAGE: English, German
REGRESSION: (compared to previous public release: Yes, No, ?): YES: Problem since SFOS 4, in SFOS 3 it was never a problem
Everytime I use an app which can display/play videos (either self-made by camera or downloaded) the apps are crashing at some point during playback. This can happen at any point during the usage:
Either it can be the first video that gets played or some videos afterwards or in seldom cases more than a half an hour later with constant usage of the app.
Affected apps are ALL video play capable apps:
e.g. LLs vPlayer, Sailimgur, picoplayer, Gallery, Gagbook, all available “Filemanagers”, etc.
Some apps that are made for playing Youtube videos only play sound , video not at all any more (may be related)
I guess that I have a misconfiguration or broken installation but I can’t find the culprit, since no one else is reporting a similar problem I don’t expect it to be a SFOS bug maybe something went wrong while upgrading from SFOS 3 to SFOS 4?
- open app(s)
- choose video
- repeat playing videos until apps hangs or crashes (usually 3-4 videos)
app(s) play videos without problem, until app get closed by user
app(s) keep crashing sometimes so much that a zombie process is left and the app has to be closed by taskmanager (e.g. Lighthouse)
