Video imports won't play? What formats should they be in?
UE4's documentation claims that it can play any video file that you can play with Windows media player, but when I import videos, they simply don't play. However, the example media from the ContentExamples (a tutorial file) do work, suggesting that my problem lies in the video format and not a general system error with video imports. Here's my process:
So what's wrong with it? No files seem to be working except for the ones that are included as examples with Unreal Engine's Feature Tours or Content Examples. My files don't play at all, no matter what format or resolution they're in. Additionally, when I paste in the URL of an online video (which is supposed to work), UE4 fills it in with C:\blah\blahblah which makes no sense because it's an online video. And then it tells me the file can't be found! Well, I'm not surprised! There's no way to paste URLs at all into the Source box without them getting changed automatically by the software. Weird.
Any help would be held to the highest of esteems, thank you.

We have since made a lot of improvements to the Media Player asset since 4.7 which include increasing its compatibility and functionality.
I suggest taking a look at this version and testing your efforts there. If you are still experiencing issues, please let us know and we can continue to troubleshoot.

Sorry this makes no sense what so ever. Its a simple task, import *.mp4 from windows and reproduce. The tutorials on the unreal site are wrong. You cant just import mp4 files and reproduce. I wish people would not answer like
"I'm not able to reproduce the issue, but I will take a second look if you will list your repro steps precisely. Also make sure you have a copy of the mp4 stored in a folder called "Movies" in your Project Folder. "
What are the steps needed to import an mp4 file and reproduce it in UE4 version 17 when running Windows 10?
