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"

What version of UE4 are you using?

avatar image Alen Atrey May 17 '14 at 02:31 PM

4.1.0 is the version

avatar image Ehamloptiran May 17 '14 at 02:33 PM

hmm.. thats the one I used to build it, so it should work. Did you put it in the plugins directory of your own project? Or in the engine plugins directory?

avatar image Alen Atrey May 17 '14 at 02:34 PM

i tried both of them

avatar image Ehamloptiran May 17 '14 at 02:37 PM

Well I can verify that it works in 4.1.0, 4.1.1 and 4.2.0 from a project and from the engine. So you will need to do some investigations on your side. Because from the information provided, I am unable to provide a solution.

do i need to rename anything,also the link you shared is not working either.

avatar image Ehamloptiran May 17 '14 at 02:43 PM

No renaming required, but you will have to compile the code yourself. The link I shared was to a forum post on unrealengine.com, and the link on the forum post is to a github repo. (The first link in the forum post requires that you have a github account linked to your unreal account). Further down the post you will find another link to another repo (Which is public) which is the prefered one to use as thats the one im updating and only contains the code for the plugin. Both links work fine. Tested just then.

compile the code,as in i have to download the source code to do so or what. can you please provide instructions for this

avatar image Ehamloptiran May 17 '14 at 03:01 PM

Yes as in download the source code. If your not building UE4 from source then this plugin will not work for you, as I am not providing any pre-built binaries until the plugin is further along. There are instructions on building the engine on the EpicGames github, and some very rough instructions on how to build the plugin. Simplest way though is create a new project. Place code into Plugins directory, Regenerate project files and build.

What I've been doing for my video/UE4 work so far is using the Coherent UI plugin.

I encode the video in a format suitable for a web player, write a simple bit of HTML to play it, and make it all available as a texture via Coherent UI. I have video playing in UE mapped to a surface and all via the material editor and Blueprints, I expect to need to add some C++ code for complex stuff I have planned but for basic use I've been fine so far.

At the moment it doesn't support audio but I've been assured that should be coming soon and as my project doesn't need it at the moment I've been fine.

I am also looking at the docs for the VP8/VP9 codecs with an eye to wrapping one of them in a UE4 plugin myself but that's a much longer term project.
