Screen flickers/blinks black when playing video very first time

I have implemented JwPlayerView in RecyclerView. I'm not placing multiple Jwplayer player view for listview, I'm just getting the specific row and inflating the JwplayerView instance only on that row.

Issue I'm facing:
1. Getting Black flickering screen effect while loading the first video and on further scroll this doesn't happen. Only for very first time it's happening.

If the question is not clear I can send some recorded video. This occurs in default sample app also.

Thanks for your support. Looking forward for your response.

This is a known issue and is related to the fact that the video is loaded in a SurfaceView. There’s currently no fix for this. As an alternative we suggest you place the player outside of any RecyclerView / ListView
