Can't play video H.264 on Android with Android Exoplayer react-native-video

The error code when video load error

{"error": {"errorException": "com.google.android.exoplayer2.ExoPlaybackException: MediaCodecVideoRenderer error, index=0, format=Format(1, null, null, video/avc, avc1.640034, -1, null, [2160, 3840, 24.000002], [-1, -1]), format_supported=NO_EXCEEDS_CAPABILITIES", "errorString": "ExoPlaybackException type : 1"}}

Currently I'm using this version and building on real Android device

react-native: 0.64

react-native-video: ^5.2.0-alpha1

This is h.264 video example: https://lifebeligum.s3.ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/documents/2021-10-04/ef07eb88-1e53-4800-b7cb-64e908a264c3.mp4

Does anyone have any idea for it?

    The video linked is using the H.264 High profile - this is not one of the standard Android supported formats, although some devices may support it.

    Currently Baseline and Main profile are listed as supported as standard. You can see the list here:

    You can check the encoding profile using a tool like ffprobe:

    You can re-encode your video with Main or Baseline and test to confirm or test with a video which you know meets the recommendation
