UE 4.27.2: Issues with media player texture in cinematic render


I’ve been messing around with media player textures for use as prop tv screens in a cinematic render and are having issues with the videos randomly restarting or not playing at all.

Im probably missing something really obvious here but so far it makes no sense.

I’ve followed various guides in how to make videos play as textures in UE4 as I figured I’ve for sure missed something, I can make them play in a play test but rarely do they actually play in my render. Really odd.

Any help would be really appreciated
