I converted an .m4v video to .ogv online. The VideoPlayer node autoplays the video when I run the scene (click on the 'play the project' button), but not when I install the scene onto my Android mobile phone i.e. video does not run and is not visible when the scene is installed on a mobile device.

I have checked that the VideoPlayer node is visible and is correctly scaled on the screen.

The video size is 5.3MB and is ogv (ogg video file).

Does the .ogv VideoPlayer work for mobiles?

I have the same problem even after including *.ogv in the non-resource export filter.

This probably doesn't work for a "real" video with a few hundreds or thousands of frames, though
