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"

We don't have a player plug-in for webcams and other video capture hardware yet, but it's on the to-do list.

really, that sounds a good plan. Could you tell me how to develop this function like 'webcams' ?

If you want to integrate webcams yourself, you can write a plug-in for the Media Framework. There are various such plug-ins in the /Engine/Plugins/Media directory where you can see how it's done.
