MoviePlayer on Pi5 alternatives?

I filed a bug report on the MoviePlayer example for Desktop crashing on Raspberry Pi 5 running 64-bit bookworm. The movie player crashes the example app without any errors. Does anyone know any alternative way or a workaround?

You checked “ldd youAppName” to see any missing libraries?

No missing libraries; I can use GStreamer from the terminal and it plays the SampleMovie. Xojo staff is looking into it.

Yo should add the bug report here for reference. xojo Media players suck, at least on windows and linux. It was a waste of time last time I try to play simple sounds on a rasp berry.

Do you have MBS plugins? They have a VLC one.

I do have MBS, but the example tells me to copy in VLC libraries, and I have no idea which ones are needed

The bug report is here:

Maybe @Christian_Schmitz can explain how to set up the example?

For now I’m using MPV from a shell, which has many options. I still would prefer movie player so I can play a movie on a part of a full screen pi app. Now, I can only play it full screen, because when playing any other size, the Raspberry Pi top menu bar becomes visible (and accessible) which isn’t an option for me.
