Exynos 7870 or SM-T580 has a problem with Widevine DRM Playback #3775
Hi! I think my issue is device or core specific problem and related with #3561.
When try to play DRM Contents of ExoPlayer 2.6.1 demo app in Exynos 7870 devices such as SM-T580(Samsung Galaxy Tab A Tablet), black flicker has occured.
use devices whose cpu is Exynos 7870
Playing 2 sources to compare.
Version of ExoPlayer being used
Device(s) and version(s) of Android being used
SM-T580 (or another Exynos 7870 device)
A full bug report captured from the device
I sorry to say I don't have SM-T580 actually...I got this issue from my customer and checked it through attached video from him. Its size is too big for github issue system. Can I send this videos to assignee when assignee is determined.
Thank you and sorry for my English.
@KiminRyu, does this particular content fail on all SM-T580s or just a sample?
All drm playback of our android app in SM-T580 has the same problem. Many SM-T580 users reviewed that there is black flickering. I tried to figure out the reason of problem with demo app, then someone attached video for the difference from normal playback and drm playback. As i mentioned above, I don't have SM-T580 device. So it is difficult to debug and get bugreport from it directly. I try to rent or buy used one...
We have been able to reproduce this issue on the SM-T580, some notes:
Restarting the device fixed it, didn't occur again for months.
While playing the logcat loops the following lines:
We have not restarted it this time, so should be able to reproduce again so let me know if you need anything else.
I can confirm this is happening when playing SD content, and the device played HD/SD content for some months without issue before this started happening.
I don't know if it could play the exoplayer UHD demo before the issue arose, and don't want to restart it to remove the issue to find out, given the difficulty in replicating it.
