Hello,

Your error shows that the server did not find your specified file. Check the path of your video resourse.

Thank you!

Am able to access the video on the browser with the same url. Is there any additional change required?

This question is similar to the issue I am facing: 
https://answers.easyar.com/14564/critical-bug-in-easyar-lib-on-android

Basically, video streaming doesn't work consistently on Android devices.
Looks like EasyAR doesn't care to respond to errors which they have in their library or example projects.

@artechlearn did you manage to resolve the issue? I would very much appreciate any help.
