When I tested it on Nexus 7 running Android 5.1.1, control bar (Play/Pause, Forward and Backward) is shown over the VideoView. But not shown on RedMi 2 running Android 5.0, Android Emulator of Nexus 6P phone, Nexus 7 tablet running Marshmallow, and Nexus 5x phone running Android N.

test on Nexus 7 running Android 5.1.1:

test on RedMi 2 running Android 5.0

test on Nexus 6P phone (Emulator) running Marshmallow

test on Nexus 9 tablet (Emulator) running Marshmallow

test on Nexus 5X (Emulator) running Android N

Remark:
To runing this example on Android Emulator, have to manual select "Hardware = GLES 2.0" in Emulated Performance of Graphics.



Next:
Add MediaController to VideoView, to provide controls of Play/Pause, Forward and Backward.
