Media becomes unavailable after unloading related Asset Bundle

Asset Bundles


In addition: on Mac, no errors are thrown when video loading fails

To reproduce:
1. Open user's attached project, scene "TestAtlasOnAssetBundle"
2. Enter Play mode and press "Load AB and Play"
3. Click "Unload AB", then "Reset Video Clip"

Expected: video clip is reset
Actual: console produces errors, unloaded media is no longer usable

Reproduced in: 2014.4.18f1, 2019.3.3f1, 2019.1.0a14, 2019.2.0a2

Note: if it's decided not to fix the issue, there's still need for tweaking on Mac's - no errors appear, as opposite to windows which throws console errors:

"Empty file: archive:"
"VideoPlayer cannot play clip:"

    Resolution Note:

    Video is streamed from the asset bundle itself and not fully loaded into memory. When you unload the asset bundle, you make streams no longer avaliable thus the error message. This applies to all content that streams from disk: Audio, Video, & Mipmap Streaming.
