Media player not working in VR in 4.27

Hi, I have an issue with the media player combined with VR since the 4.27.2 upgrade of the engine. I’m using the collabviewer template for reference. The media player seems to work fine on its own inside the engine or in the executable, but as soon as I turn the VR and put the headset on (Quest 2 with Oculis Link), the playback time from the GetTime function seems to stall and stop. And as soon as I take off the headset, and return to another pawn (fly or walk mode from CollabViewer), the same video continues as normal.

Is this a known issue where the media player and VR aren’t compatible in 4.27? Does anyone have a clue how to fix it?


To answer your question I have MediaPlayer working with HP Reverb G2 in 4.27.2, but I have other problem with it as the video freezes when it starts. Everything freezes. I guess it loads the video into memory/buffer or does something else. It feels ugly. I do not have video preload/precache selected.

Do you know why such playback start freeze is happening?
