Description Thomas Pfeiffer 2013-08-15 18:37:44 UTC
When starting PMC directly with a video file for the first time, it plays fine. When I then close PMC and open another video, the video player UI comes up and the video's sound is played, but the video is not shown.
If I click the back arrow twice to go back to the home screen and then click the place where the back arrow was again, I get back to the video and it is played.

If I select a video to play from within PMC, it plays correctly. If I then close PMC and open a video from the file browser, it plays correctly. Closing PMC and opening another video file brings the problem back. 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to the file browser
2. Click a video file
3. Close PMC
4. Click another video file
Actual Results:  
PMC with video play UI is shown, video's sound plays but no visuals

Expected Results:  
Video plays normally

I experienced this in Plasma Active

Don't attempt to hide the mediaplayer if its the current page.
