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"

How can I use the 'Live Streaming' feature? (4.9.2)

alt text

I was playing with blueprints and came across the 'Live Streaming' category. I had a look and can see that you can "broadcast" the games video output, using an "internet streaming service".

I checked the blueprint node reference/api documentation, but did not see anything about Live Streaming (I know, at the top it says that it may not be up-t-date).

  1. Is there an example somewhere of how to use these features?

  2. Can I, instead of streaming to a internet streaming service, stream to another machine (either on my network or from the cloud -- amazon web services)?

  3. If not (2), is there another way that I can stream the game video across the network (preferably from an AWS instance) to a client machine?

Any chance we can still use this and stream to a specified end point? Docs around what kind of end point to set up etc? I actually have a need to either stream video or sequential camera screen shots. I need to select various cameras which then stream their rendered output across the network.

Any chance you actually managed to figure how to do that ? I've been looking for an answer to that specific question for ages and I feel like i'm getting close, but i can't go any further than this post... Please be my savior

Hi rich,

the livestreaming feature was an experiment by the Epic Games guys which required you to manually get the Twitch SDK in order to use without it crashing on you.

However, twitch has stopped supporting the SDK and no longer gives it out therefore making these nodes useless.

Sorry to necro this, but can the web cam still be enabled through this node? and then have the texture accessed via. IGameLiveStreaming::Get().GetWebCamTexture()
