Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Media Framework Source field bug

Hello.

I just started learn about Media Framework and found interesting bug.

In docs has info

The MediaPlayer asset represents a player for a media source such as a movie file on disk or a streaming media URL on the internet.

https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Engine/MediaFramework/index.html

I want to play URL http://www.quirksmode.org/html5/videos/big_buck_bunny.mp4 with MediaPlayer and I paste in the field Source - File or URL link http://www.quirksmode.org/html5/videos/big_buck_bunny.mp4 .

But after paste field converted link to C:/Program Files/Epic Games/4.7/Engine/Binaries/Win64/http://www.quirksmode.org/html5/videos/big_buck_bunny.mp4

Why and how to fix?

Hi Arthur,

This will be fixed in 4.8. If you want to fix it locally on your own, check out the following GitHub commits:

You can try the unofficial VLC plug-in, but it's still in an early stage, and no audio/caption support. Pull requests welcome: https://github.com/ue4plugins/VlcMedia

Hi!

I am compiling editor with this plugin right now.

I found project of this plug-in on your GitHub profile.

Hello, Gerke Max Preussner.

I compiled UE source with your plugin.

After that I disabled WMF plugin in my project settings:

http://www.quirksmode.org/html5/videos/big_buck_bunny.mp4

and I keep enabled your VLC plugin: alt text

After that I set up MediaPlayer: alt text

After that when I press Play button - "Stopped" flashed and nothing happened.

It still not working? :)

Working for me on local files but not with url (4.8.2)

Correct. It is fixed in 4.9 (main UE repo at GitHub) with plugin https://github.com/ue4plugins/VlcMedia . You need compile sources from repo with this plugin.
