I also have to add that seeking is impossible (doesn’t work) and also on dark videos you cant see the buttons which is a UI/UX problem.

Could you add more information under the section Steps to reproduce?

Thank you in advance.

TBH i don’t know what to add to it. Use any of the apps described to play videos and you will get it once in every few tries.
