[iOS] Video Player freezes when dismissing Siri by tapping on the screen



Reproduction steps:
1. Open the attached project ""
2. Build and Deploy the Scene "SampleScene" to a device
3. Activate Siri
4. Tap on the screen to dismiss Siri
5. If the Video does not freeze, repeat from step 3

Expected result: The Video resumes after Siri is dismissed
Actual result: The Video freezes

Reproducible with: 2019.4.34f1, 2020.3.25f1, 2021.2.7f1, 2022.1.0b2

Reproduces on:
- iPhone 12 Mini (iOS 14.1)
- iPhone 13 (iOS 15.0)
- iPad Air 4th Gen (iOS 14.7.1) (reproduction is less consistent due to how tapping to dismiss Siri works)

Did not reproduce on:
- iPhone 6 (iOS 12.4.8) (Activating Siri takes up the entire screen preventing tapping on the screen to dismiss it)

- Most often freezes after the first try, however, due to the way Siri works on some devices, might require to attempt activating and dismissing it multiple times
- Dismissing Siri by voice, or by clicking the Home button does not reproduce the issue

  1. Resolution Note (fix version 2021.3.36f1):

    Dismissing Siri via tapping (as opposed to timeout/voice/button) leaves the iOS AV subsystem inoperable for a short while afterwards. Now detecting the end of this prolonged AV interruption before resuming paused video playback.
