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 do you add a video into Widget?

I've tried this, but everytime i load up the game the media is just invisible, kinda frustrating. Could anyone tell me how to do this, please?

I'd also like to know this. The documentation only shows how to add it to a level. I found this video... https://youtu.be/JrzhS33q9iM

...and it's exactly what I need to do however, this looks like it was possible to do in an old version and now does not work in 4.15 :(

Any help would be awesome!

Update: I can get the video to play in the UI widget by doing this but there is no sound. alt text

Actually, ignore what I've just posted.

If i open this level and run it, there is no sound but when I run the game from the start and this level is loaded the sound is working fine.

ASThomaSA, there's quite a bit of documentation on UE4 video support at the link below including using it with UMG. Have you read through this, yet?

Note that the encoding format of your video does matter. One of the most popular formats, .MP4 encoded as H.264, is not yet supported (according to this documentation.)
