Super excited about the new version - thank you!
Beta 1 (OS: KDE Neon 5.20)
I tried out the video backgrounds feature by copying an existing theme (Blue Burst) to a new theme and adding a video background (small mp4) instead of an image background and then setting the new theme as the global default. I'm using a machine with a single monitor (haven't had a chance to try on our dual monitor setup at church) Here's what happens:
The live window shows the text of the song, but only a plain black background.When I choose to "View the Presentation" the video background plays but the text of the song does not display at all.The video background (and in fact any video file whether displayed as a theme background or standalone set item) all flicker continuously. I don't have this problem playing the same files directly through VLC. Have tried installing additional codecs, but still no joy.
Here's the log:

I'm going to assume this is hardware-related and keep digging ...
Edit: Installed Kubuntu 20.10 instead and the error messages above disappear, but the flickering and other behaviour remains
