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 too am having issues. Apologies but none of these answers are helpful. I have exported from premiere pro my video as an mp4, wmv, avi, and I think some others. They will all import ONLY as file media source :( Unlike all of the videos. Additionally, I found in the advanced assets under media, the new media player thing, but it basically lets me select my video in the media player, and play it. That is it, it never actually is able to become that video file. It needs imported as such or something I just cannot figure it out :( also I am not sure what it means to open the file media source in blueprints b/c it has none, and little options. Also there is no blueprint class I can find relating to media player.

Run into the same issue,here is what worked for me, import the video as file media source, create a media player, check video and audio outputs, now this is wher could get tricky

Wherever you want to play the video be a widget or static mesh, create the pertinent material right clicking the video output and give create material

The in wherever blueprint you want to play the video, create a media player variable, then from that variable drag "OPEN SOURCE" and select the media source you imported

After that then follows whatever you want to do with the video

Hope it helps

How do you import video into Media Player. There is no source option.

You open the media source via Blueprint. Follow the tutorial.
