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"

What you will have to do in order to play the video inside of Ue4 is to create a directory called "Movie" inside your projects content directory (Unreal Projects\YourProject\Content) and drag the video into this directory. After that you will have to create a so-called FileMediaSource (Right click in Content Browser > Media > File Media Source) and then link the video in your "Movies" directory to it. After that create a Media Player (Right click in content browser > Media > Media Player) and then just open the Media Player and you will see a list of these Media Files in the bottom part of the window. Hope this helps

Follow this tutorial to create a media player material: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jHwz-WLzHoc

Then to add it to an UMG Widget, you will need to create a border. After this you will need to set the border material clicking in border and going to Details > Appearence > Brush > Image > Select the material you created following the video instructions
