I just tried to reproduce the issue on a Nexus 5X running Android 8.0 and ABB version 1.2. It takes a while until the thumbnail is shown and there is now visual indicator for the user to know, that the site is still loading something. But after 2-3 sec. the thumbnail is shown and I can play the video.

@t.pregueiro @m.koenig
Maybe we can check this on a couple of other phone when doing QA for ABB 1.3 and hopefully close this issue afterwards.
