[Platform_Android]Android ICS - Blackscreen with Netstream/Video or OSMF : problem with video.attachNetStream(null);


Problem Description:
With Android ICS (4.0.3) on my Asus Tansformer TF101,
a black screen appears with netstream and the method video.attachNetStream(null);

Steps to Reproduce:
- use the following projet : iwNetStreamBug.fxp or the apk file in the project
- use a Asus Transformer with Android 4.0.3
1 - click on 'Play Video' button
2 - when the video starts, wait 2/3 seconds and click on 'Back BUG' button
3 - click on Home key/button (Android home key)
4 - re-activate/start the application => a black screen appears
Note: If you haven't a black screen, repeat step 1 to 4

If you use the 'Back' button in step2, the method "video.attachNetStream(null);"
is not called and all is ok.

This bug is reproductible with AIR 3.2

I have a previous bug with the same problem with OSMF:
Bug # 3131456: Android 4.0 (ICS) - black screen with a video player based on OSMF on Asus Transformer
If I use a monkey patch with OSMF 1.6.1 (to comment line 308 in
to comment the call "currentVideoRenderer.attachNetStream(null);",
all is ok and I have no blackscreen.

Note: the project iwNetStreamBug.fxp use Flex SDK 4.6.2.
It's an internal name: it's Flex SDK 4.6.0 + AIR SDK 3.3 beta 4 (Build - 05/01/2012)

Actual Result:
Black screen when re-activate the application.

Expected Result:
No black screen

Any Workarounds:
Don't use video.attachNetStream(null) on ICS (Android 4.0)

Test Configuration

ASUS Transformer TF101 with Androd ICS 4.0.3
