Hello, I think there is a bug with the vp8 hardware decoders. Some videos in some apps don't run, and the log I get is the following:

ExoPlayerWrapper: Caused by:$DecoderInitializationException: Decoder init failed:, Format(1, null, null, video/x-vnd.on2.vp8, null, -1, und, [517, 800, -1.0], [-1, -1])
517, 800

Apparently it fails to decode videos with odd dimensions.

Is it possible to pass this feedback to the devs, so they can maybe roll a patch out.
