Bug Description

I have been using beamer and the multimedia package for many years to play video and audio content in my slides. Until now, the only free viewer that could display the material that I am aware of was Okular. However, since Ubuntu 18.04, okular has become extremely unstable with continuous crashes, so I have given another try to Evince.

Evince can display the videos just fine, but unfortunately, when the video ends, the last frame remains on top of any new slide covering the slide material. I believe this should be an easy fix. There must be some cleaning up that needs to be done at the end of the video, or when the slide is changed that is clearly not performed. For example, if I play the video and at the same time change slide, the video continues to play on top.

I am using
Ubuntu 18.04.1
Evince 3.28.4
texlive 2017.20180305-1
kernel 4.15.0-46-generic

affects: poppler (Ubuntu) → evince (Ubuntu)

It sounds a bit similar to https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/evince/issues/1021 upstream
