    Question Android videoView not showing inside fragment

    Hey all I am having a little bit of an issue with trying to call a fragment that has the videoview within it into my current fragment page.

    When I click on the test button I set up it goes through the code without error but never shows the video fragment - I even gave it a background color of red so I could see it load into my current view.

    My goal here is just to send a parameter of the video path to the video fragment videoview player and start playing it.

    videoPlay.java
    public class videoPlay extends Fragment {
        public videoPlay(){
        //constructor
        }
     
        @Override
        public void onCreate(@Nullable Bundle savedInstanceState) {
            super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        }
     
        @Nullable
        @Override
        public View onCreateView(LayoutInflater inflater, @Nullable ViewGroup container, @Nullable Bundle savedInstanceState) {
            View rootView = inflater.inflate(R.layout._fragvideoplay, container, false);
     
            MediaController mc= new MediaController(getActivity());
            VideoView view = (VideoView)rootView.findViewById(R.id.videoView);
            String path = Environment.getExternalStorageDirectory().getAbsolutePath().toString() + "/sddir/Bubble Guppies.mp4";
            view.setVideoURI(Uri.parse(path));
            view.setMediaController(mc);
            view.start();
     
            return rootView;
        }
     
        @Override
        public void onViewCreated(View view, @Nullable Bundle savedInstanceState) {
     
        }
    }

            tools:ignore="SpeakableTextPresentCheck">
        </android.support.v4.view.ViewPager>
    </RelativeLayout>

    The path to the movie is correct. And the movie is there in the "external" SD card path. Clicking around on the new fragment (videoPlay) yields no video menu (play, remind, pause...) so its not there.

    Any help would be great!
