Playing HLS Stream on Android using capacitor-video-player - Crashes

I am trying to using the plugin capacitor-video-player for iOS and Android to play HLS files. On iOS, the plugin works great. On Android, the application always crashes. Even when I test the repo and not my application, the application crashes.

Has anyone else run into this issue for Android or have an alternative ideas? I do need the video to run within the app.

I am using Capacitor 5 with Ionic 7 and Angular 16.
