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"

Unreal Engine Web Browser / Youtube Videos

Hello Everyone!

For a game i am working on, i need to embed youtube videos into the game (just as a widget). But most importantly, I am trying to find a way to get the statistics of the video, especially the views.

I already managed to play the video by using the Web Browser plugin, but there is no way for me to get any data from the youtube page right ? I have seen some codes and javascripts which apparently work very easy, so i thought about getting the Unreal.js plugin. To be honest, i never worked with Javascript so i have no idea how to make this work.

Or is there any other way how I can play a youtube video inside my game and get the view statistics (to store them in a variable).

Thank you !

Product Version: UE 4.12
