    I want to render multiple cameras to the screen each with their own video player rendering to their Near or Far plane.
    However, when I tried to do this all the cameras render the same video.
    Is this a bug? Is there anyway to make this work?
    My main reason for wanting to take this approach is that I understand it is the most performant option.

    Can you post some screenshots of your setup (hierarchy/inspectors)? I'm not sure I'm clear on what exactly you're trying to do.

    For demo purposes below, the screen in split into 4 sections, rendering 2 cameras in the BL and TR corners.

    Expected Result:

    Let me do some checking and I'll see if there's a sensible answer.

    Hey @xzodia

    I've asked the Video team and gotten some useful info.

    It looks like you've stumbled on a long-standing bug that's only recently been addressed in 2023.1.0a20, and the fix hasn't been back-ported, at least not yet.

    Hope this helps!
