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 To Access Phone Camera Feed?

I'm trying to access the camera on a phone and display the live feed from it on a object in the world, but i'm having trouble figuring out any way to get the live feed from a phones camera. Does anyone know how this can be achieved via Blueprints or C++ (Blueprint version would be preferred if possible)?

Sadly I still don't know of any way to do this. The best idea I got was find a plugin web browser that worked on mobile devices and create a webpage that displayed the camera however at the time of posting this question there was no plugin mobile web browsers and i'm not sure if any of the current ones work properly on mobile yet. You would also need to come up with a way around the webpage prompting for the users permission to access the camera and have to deal with the fact there would be very significant delay but other than that I don't know of anything else that could possibly work.
