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 player not working after packaging

Hi all,

We're having an issue with the media player not playing the video once packaged. It works fine in the editor but once packaged it shows as a black material. The video [man.wmv] is located under Content/Movies. As a basic test in a new project I tried this: Add movie to assets -> create media texture -> create material -> apply material to static mesh -> add static mesh to blueprint as component -> add blueprint to scene [video is auto-play and looping]. This works fine in scene but once packaged shows as a black material.

Anyone managed to get this working? Any steps to try? [v4.7.6]


Product Version: UE 4.7

Ok, so I managed to get it working in the basic test. Tried out different video types, some better than others - MPEG-4 appears to be best - Thanks again Divo.

Ah, I will give that a try! I was thinking it was something to do with paths being hardcoded. Thanks Divo
