MediaMetadataRetriever setDataSource failed: status = 0xFFFFFFED

3

I need to fetch frames from video located in the web. That's how I do this:

class PlayerWrapper {
    private static final MediaMetadataRetriever mMediaMetadataRetriever = new MediaMetadataRetriever();

    …

    public void initPlayback(final Context context, final VideoSurfaceView videoSurface, final String url) {
        new Thread(new Runnable() {
            @Override
            public void run() {
                …

                try {
                    mMediaMetadataRetriever.setDataSource(url, new HashMap<String, String>());
                } catch (Exception e) {
                    DPLog(e);
                }

            }
        }).start();
    }

    public Bitmap getFrameAt(int positionMillis) {
        if (mMediaMetadataRetriever != null) {
            DPLog.d("Creating frame for position [%s]", positionMillis);
            try {
                return mMediaMetadataRetriever.getFrameAtTime(positionMillis * 1000);
            } catch (Exception e) {
                …
                return null;
            }
        } else {
            return null;
        }
    }
}

This works fine on several devices with Android 4.4, 5 and 6. But on one device with Android 4.1.2 setDataSource function fails with following stack trace:

java.lang.RuntimeException: setDataSource failed: status = 0xFFFFFFED
       at android.media.MediaMetadataRetriever._setDataSource(MediaMetadataRetriever.java)
       at android.media.MediaMetadataRetriever.setDataSource(MediaMetadataRetriever.java:99)
       at co.unreel.videoapp.playback.UnreelPlayer$3.run(UnreelPlayer.java:138)
       at java.lang.Thread.run(Thread.java:856)

Also tried this code on emulator, got almost the same but with status 0x80000000

Url is got from YouTube API, looks like this:

Why this can happen and what to do?

I also tried to use FFmpegMediaMetadataRetriever with the same logic, but it doesn't work at all, setDataSource causes exceptions with status 0xFFFFFFFF on all devices. As I found on SO, that means that url is invalid, but it is ok and played by MediaPlayer without any issues. Also I found that ffmpeg has issues with urls longer than 1024, but that's not my case too.

May be there are another way to get frames from video?

android
ffmpeg
android-mediaplayer
mediametadataretriever

Get the same error. setDataSource failed: status = 0xFFFFFFED

Use Crosswalk on android to play a mp3 file on https server. And found this from google source at line 940

Sets the data source (file-path or http/rtsp URL) to use.

maybe setDataSource not support https. and this works when i use http server.

private static final String videoPath = 
    "android.resource://com.example.dvid/"+"/raw/testvid";

Uri data = Uri.parse(videoPath);
FFmpegMediaMetadataRetriever fmmr = new FFmpegMediaMetadataRetriever();
    fmmr.setDataSource(data.toString());

I am getting IllegalArgumentException. I am trying to get frames from a video in Android.
