This question is required more detail. I think you try, when video state change to buffering then you try to paused video. correct?.

Re: Roku Video Player shows black screen while buffering the content

Actually, I want to display the video frame (of the point when video player started buffering) with a loader on it while video player is buffering, instead of showing a black screen in the background of a loader.
Is there any way to do so?

No such method has been provided by Roku. But, you can make this possible in your way.

Example :

I take a small example in a video player. Please, put the below code in an XML file.

<Video id="video_node_ID" height="720" width="1280"
translation="[0,0]" visible="false" />
<LayoutGroup translation="[640,360]"
horizAlignment="center" vertAlignment="center">
         <BusySpinner id="spin" clockwise="true" spinInterval="2" />
</LayoutGroup>

And Also, Put below code in your .brs file

sub init()
     m.video = m.top.findNode("video_node_ID")
     m.video.observeField("state", "stateChanged")
     m.spin = m.top.findNode("spin")
     m.spin.visible = false
     m.spin.uri = "pkg:/images/loader.png"
end sub
function stateChanged()
     ?"m.video.state : " m.video.state 
     if m.video.state = "playing"
         ?"playback handling!"
         m.video.visible = true
         m.spin.control = "stop"
         m.spin.visible = false
         ?"playback handling Closed!" 
         handled = true
     else if m.video.state = "buffering"
         ?"buffering handling!"
         m.video.visible = false
         m.spin.control = "start"
         m.spin.visible = true
         ?"buffering handling Closed!" 
         handled = true
     end if
return handled 
end function

Using these codes you able to show loader instead of the black screen. I hope this is helpful to you.

Thanks for reply,
but this is not what we are searching for, Actually we want to show video frame should pause prior to buffering. and when we start video  it will play next frame of video.
