Media Player not saving Media Texture after closing window
I've looked all over and I can't find anyone who has had the same issue with media files. I technically have a few issues, all related to the same thing, but the main issue is in bold below (Problem 1 c after the picture).
Problem 1.a. When I import video files into the Content > Movies folder, they appear as a File Media Source as expected, as long as I click and drag them directly into UE4. If I try to bring them in via File Explorer, they do not appear in UE4, however, other files, like JPGs will.
Problem 1.b When I click on the File Media Source, I am not able to see the video, but I can see that the File Media Source is linking to the file name. Not sure if this is an issue, but after watching countless tutorials, and looking into the UE4 docs, it seems like I should see the video play here. I have added a pic below to show what I mean.
Problem 1 c (The main problem): After bringing in the File Media Source, I create a Media Player, which I open. I then double click the media file in the section below the video, wait a few seconds, and then can see the video showing in the Output section next to Video Texture. That media texture will also show the video, and I can add it to a material and watch the Video display on any 3D mesh.
But, if I close out of the Media Player window, even after saving everything, the Media Texture goes black, and the Material goes black as well.
What I've tried: - AVI, MP4, MOV, WMV files. The results are always the same, no matter what file type, codec, etc. - Both PC and Mac computers
Here is a link to a video I uploaded showing the problem: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ga9TZb5sBm0&feature=youtu.be.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
