Startup Movie Doesn't Play if Network is Restricted
Project is in 4.10
Was ripping my hair out for hours because my startup video suddenly stopped working for no reason.
Apparently the problem was that I was on a coffee shops WiFi at the time? I had restarted several times, tried all different build types, video formats, ini settings, etc. My builds all fixed themselves when I got home on my regular network.
So the only explanation I am left with is that UE4 was attempting to call home despite having all those options off, could not do so due to restrictions on the network, but saw there was internet access (no network at all does not display the same issue), and this somehow caused the video not to play? What?
Why is my project calling home at all? Why is this cause for such a strange problem?
