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"

Playing youtube inside your level?

Hi, what would be the best way to play youtube video's inside a level? They should be able to run as a video texture (or similar) inside the level so I can play them on a static mesh. I can do this perfectly with MP4/WMV but I can't find a way to do it using native youtube URL. I don't want to download these movies anymore but rather integrate them directly. I checked the internet but I only find similar questions that are outdated (2014/2015). I can't image nobody else has this question.

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

Thanks, I did try the widget but a. I currently cannot launch my game when the browser plugin is enabled (posted separate thread for this) and b. I cannot just show the youtube movie standalone.

Anyone has another suggestion how to play a youtube from inside the level? I assumed this should be a fairly common question since many companies already have youtube content and the engine already plays MP4, WMV etc.

Bit of a late answer but the browser plugin is not needed at all. It's actually fairly simple if you extract the MP4 from YouTube using a downloader written in PHP.

You would simply have to paste a link like this in your StreamMediaSource: https://www.yourdomain.com/extract/getvideo.php?videoid=[YT-ID]&format=best
