Alpha transparency in VideoFile module

I've got some transparent (alpha channel) HEVC videos that I'm trying to use. They appear transparent in other software, but they're not transparent when I load them in the VideoFile module.

Anyone know what I'm doing wrong? Thanks!

The VideoFile module does support some codecs with alpha, but maybe not HEVC.

Ok, anyone know a codec in particular that works? Animated PNG files don't work properly, either. They take a very long time to reset to the 1st frame, while looping. :?

By far the most efficient codec to use in the VideoFile module is Hap, which has an Alpha option. https://hap.video/using-hap.html
