    When I run a Windows build made with Unity on SteamDeck, the VideoPlayer does not play the video properly.
    A color bar like the link below appears instead.

    I have checked with Unity2020.3.18f1 and Unity2021.3.16f1.
    Does anyone have any information on this issue?

    I tried H264 and H265 codecs, but neither worked.

    I read on the forum that it can be cured by adding Proton GE.
    As a game developer, I want it to work with regular Proton.

    I got it to work by setting the Codec to VP8...
