[Closed] Media Source BP crashes engine (REPRODUCABLE)
So here's a bug which can be reproduced in UE4.17.1.
I found this out because I wanted to create a TV screen which opens a video file on BeginPlay. It worked, until I went fullscreen using F11 (may not crash the first time).
Here's how to reproduce the bug:
(As a precaution, when I made a blank project, I hit play and then hit F11 ten times to make sure the crash wasn't occurring straight away).
I hope this bug gets fixed in the next update; I heard someone was having a similar problem in 4.16.

Hi Krilium, thanks for the detailed feedback. This problem is already known. The key issue here is that the Engine can crash in media rendering code while the render device is being suspended and/or recreated. This happens during resizing of the viewport, for example. I'll mark this as a duplicate.
