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"

[Closed] Media player **not always** working after packaging

I'm using Unreal MediaPlayer in my project under Windows 10.

The file URL for my MediaPlayer is ./Movies/Test.mp4 with codec:

Stream #0:0(eng): Video: h264 (High) (avc1 / 0x31637661), yuv420p(tv, bt709), 2048x1024 [SAR 1:1 DAR 2:1], 5915 kb/s, 59.94 fps, 59.94 tbr, 60k tbn (default)

  1. I put the object with video material in a level.

  2. In the event BeginPlay, rewind and then play the video.

  3. In the event EndPlay, pause the video.

The results are:

  • When I preview in the Unreal Editor, it always works.

  • When I packed the game for shipping (using or not using pak files). Sometimes it works for first 1~2 time when I enter the level. Other conditions (leave and enter for more than 1~2 times or sometimes even the first time enter the level), It only show black texture.

Hey xpolife,

This was a known and reported issue, UE-28011 where Media Players would not play in Standalone or Packaged games as expected. We are still investigating this issue as more recently a user has reported a similar outcome in the 4.12.3 release as well. If you don't mind, I would like to keep these threads/posts unified for tracking purposes.

I am going to mark this issue as closed and resolved, and we can continue our discussion on the post below.

Media Player black after Packaging

Let me know if you have further questions.

Thank you,

Andrew Hurley
