Trying to view videos crashes the app

Bought app for my son. He loves snakes. Unfortunately, the app crashes every time he tries to watch a video in the media gallery. I’ve installed the latest updates on my iPad and updated the app. This app has a lot of potential to be cool. Just need to fix the video playback functionality or remove it.
