Is there any good solutions for preventing releasing when play in RecyclerView? I just found that the VideoView is released after item being scrolled up or down and unvisible for user (the item view was detached from window). Must i call setReleaseOnDetachFromWindow() for this problem? To be honest, i don’t want to cache holders or VideoViews by myself when they are not used or visible. But if i don’t do that, i can’t find all of them to reease when exiting activity.

Same problem, @brianwernick any suggestion to handle this in RecyclerView ?

Because Android sends a lowMemory callback only when it’s really low in memory. Apps, as good citizens, should not consume memory when they are not being used. Exoplayer also suggests doing the same in its documentation.
