BUG displaying video in Fabric Timelines

I’m using the latest version of Fabric’s Twitter Kit, and i’m having an issue displaying video. Here it is:

When showing a ListTimeline, works perfectly:
CompactTweetView shows thumbnail with PLAY overlay, and:

  • when a user presses the thumbnail, it goes to full screen video view.
  • when a user presses on the tweet, but not the thumbnail, it goes to FullTweetView with the thumbnail with PLAY overlay.

When showing a SearchTimeline, it’s got some issues:
CompactTweetView shows thumbnail WITHOUT PLAY overlay, and:

  • when a user presses the thumbnail, it shows a full screen view of the thumbnail image.
  • when the user presses on the text, it goes to FullTweetView with the thumbnail with PLAY overlay.

I don’t think i’m doing anything wrong, can anyone help me out?

Thanks!

Forgot about clarifying, this is on Android’s TwitterKit.

Twitter’s search API does not support extended entities, which are needed to display video in Twitter Kit. If the API response changes then your deployed app should display video without any code changes or kit upgrade to handle the change.

Hmm i see…

I can`t really use ListTimelines because i need word filtering.

What do you suggest i do? Do you have any idea if this change is on the roadmap?
