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"

Video insertion problem in UE 4.15


I would like to insert a video to my scene in UE 4.15, to be able to create a video room environment in Vive but it does not let me to insert the video as texture (can do it in editor but does not work when I play the scene). This function was working properly in 4.14 but I could not find a solution for 4.15. But there is no way for me to go back to 4.14 due to scene requirements. Is there anyone who can guide me? Thank you.

Product Version: UE 4.15

Hello again Rudy,

Thank you very much for your interest. I am writing to share screenshots of my case, you can find them below:

1) Video and audio files are defined, blueprint added. alt text

2) When we play the video on the media player, it also plays on the scene, can be seen on the background. alt text

3) When we close media player, video on the scene also stops working. alt text

I hope you can help us with these information. Looking forward to hearing from you.

I noticed that you have opened the Source but you did not include a play node. I have provided an example below. Could you try this and let me know if you are still having the same issue?

Hello Rudy,

Thank you for your answer and example. We have tried to add play node to our blueprint (we tried that earlier also), but still experiencing the same problem; as soon as we execute play, video disappears from the scene. It feels like the project fail to access video file location when we play the scene.

After taking another look, I noticed that you have "Play on Open" unchecked in your media player. Could you try checking this option to true (along with the suggestion above) and let me know if this helps.

Hello Rudy,

First of all I would like to apologize for my late reply. We are still experiencing the same problem, tried everything but could not resolve it. We can only play the video on our scene when the media player is open. When we close the player, video disappears from the scene. I will share step-by-step screenshots if required. Thank you.

Hello Rudy,

We tried that also (were checking "play on open" on our original tries but missed out when we were taking the screen shots) but it did not work.

But I would like to tell you that the problem is solved thanks to all your help. In case anyone else experience similar problem; It seems there were 2 different media players in the content and when we merge, engine was probably calling the video from the one which was not defined to play the video. We changed the blue print to fix to locate right player, it started to play perfectly.

Thank you very much again.
