Why was the video playing on an audio device?
You might be asking yourself: I have a video to record, and the camera will play the recording whenever I start the recording. In that case, the only apps required for the recording app (Android, iOS) is the recording app. I can just open the recording app in the Play Store to capture the screen, play the video, and end the recording.
In that case, when a user starts playback of the recording, the app will need to open the recording app. Then it must open any media player and have it display the audio recording. I’ll cover some apps to help you with that below:

button. Press the Camera icon from your homescreen in the center (or on your homescreen) to capture the screen. The UI can be a little tricky at first. You’ll need to double-tap the Camera icon or double-tap anywhere on the screen.
After you have the screen captured, you can just use the playback controls in the recording app if you want to switch to other apps and perform other operations. (This is how you switch to a video file from an image file.)
If the recording app asks you to “record while listening in?” do it. If the recording app asks you to “record while you’re browsing” do it. If you are trying to take a screenshot and the recording app asks you to record while you’re taking your screenshot, do it. Doing so will show the screenshot in your video so others can look through your videos when they don’t want to be bothered by the camera.
You will probably want to use an app like PVR Player (or just play a bit of YouTube or VLC) if you want to take any longer videos. But these are more complicated things to implement.
This is a good practice to follow especially on Android. If it is possible to set up the recorder correctly and have it act as a “phone”, and a “poster player” with some pre-installed media player apps, you will be recording audio and video. You don’t have to add all of the apps you currently use to play music or video. You just don’t need the most common ones.
