I've just made this simple capx and exported it as Cordova and into XDK.
The video just played as intended.

So as far as I can tell, everything works as it is supposed to, the error is either somehow in your projects/code or it was in releases less than r222 which is the current beta, used for that capx.
It is possible the release is in cause as r222 fixed an issue with capital letters in the URL of video, as per the changelog.

Apparently it doesn't matter for cordova export to not have the "media" folder for XDK.
New to Construct ? Where to start

Please attach a capx to any help request or bug report !

And OMG ! It was the "upper case" video issue ! using 221 version Just tried with lower case (which i thought is a foolish try) and it worked !!


TESTED SOLVED:
For all those people tearing their hair off as Videos are not playing, "The video file name must be "all lower case"

Thanks a lot Kyatric !
