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"

Looping movie has a black frame pop in on loop

I'm using a media playlist to play a 30 second looping movie in the background of the front end.

At the loop point, there is a visible pop as it looks like an all black frame is being inserted. Is there any way to keep this from happening? I've tried using a WMV and a MP4, but the issue happens in both.

Product Version: UE 4.13

I have the same problem in 4.15.1. Were you able to find a solution?

Solution is easy.

Open your "media texture" and uncheck "auto clear".

If auto clear is off there should be no black frame.

But it doesnt work if you have a lot of different media player which should be looping.

I think one video with loop is ok but when I tried using more than one it started to lag.

Originally, I think we'd only had the movie looping through UMG. It's been a while, but I think the issue was fixed when it was set to loop in the actual media player. (see pic)

我使用了如下图的方法来解决这个黑色单帧的问题。蓝图为在播放一段视频后连续播放一段循环视频。
