I have instantiated a roVideoPlayer object and am trying to get a stream going, yet I keep encountering a undocumented RoVideoPlayerEvent error:
isRequestFailed = true, "failed to create media player"

Any guidance on what causes this error?

Kind Regards,

Re: RoVideoPlayer

"failed to create media player" is usually an indication that a video player or video screen has already been created. Are you trying to play multiple streams at once?
