I've noticed that pause/play using Bluetooth earphones' buttons is not working in any version of Android 12 (tested on every version, from DP1 till PB1). The sound is muted for a few seconds, but the video continues playing. I've tried both free and pro versions and tried toggling the settings. The same problem also exists in Facebook app but not VLC player nor XPlayer.

Just an update, the bug is not resolved in Android 12 Beta 2, which was released yesterday.
We apologize for the delayed response.

Based on the information provided, there seems to be a bug in Android 12's MediaPlayer implementation. Please select HW+ Decoder from the menu options on the playback screen and let us know if it fixes your problems.

The problem is not solved by choosing HW+ decoder. I understand that this problem is in Android 12 (because the same problem exists in videos on Facebook app), but some other media players like X Player and VLC seem to have apparently found a workaround the issue. Good luck with that. I am really missing my favourite media since Android 12 DPs started coming out.
