Issue with Filesystem.readFile()

I am trying to record video with cordova media capture plugin and then open the file with Filesystem.readFile(). When I try to run the following code, It seems to hang on the function call.

import { MediaCapture } from ‘@ionic-native/media-capture/ngx’;
import { FilesystemDirectory, FilesystemEncoding, Plugins } from ‘@capacitor/core’;
const { Filesystem } = Plugins;

async getVideo() {

let data = await this.mediaCapture.captureVideo({ limit: 1 });
let fileInfo = data[0];

let file = await Filesystem.readFile({
  path: fileInfo.fullPath.replace('file://', '')

console.log('file read');


If anyone can give me some guidance, it would be very much appreciated. Thanks.

Well use debugger in your call function, check there what result you got
