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"

I've just fixed the code in UE4 4.13 to handle spaces in the filename so it will work in the next binary build.

So does that mean it will be working in the public version of 4.13 or in the next preview perhaps??

It should work in the next preview.

The media framework can't find your movie file - in the movie file asset in the Editor change the path to be relative, i.e: ./Movies/JLC_CREATIVE_LOGO_ANIMATION.mp4

Upload the sample project you have - something odd is going on there and screenshots of the log aren't enough to work out what.

How do I do that?

Zip up your project by going to the File > Package Project > Zip Up Project. Then upload it to a sharable google drive link (because the file size will probably exceed the amount allowed on answerhub). Share with us the link in your response.

There's a bug when the filename has spaces in it that's confusing the AvfMedia code - as a temporary fix replace the spaces in the filename with underscores and the movie plays just fine.

You have to change the name on disk alt text and the name in the UE4 asset in the Content browser alt text. Then it definitely does work as I have it running here using your project: alt text
