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"

Need help with tcp & udp stream for media player

since ue4 does not support udp/tcp stream url to set up a stream media player, i need help on setting this up, since i don't have any other protocol to use, i found the udp messassing plugin on unreal engine, but i really don't know how to call any class from that plugin, or if streaming is even possible, i'm super lost right now, my last chance is to set up a rtsp server to stream, but these guys don't want that, and this project has to be done for the next week

Product Version: UE 4.19

RTSP over TCP and RTSP over UDP are supported by WmfMedia media on Windows. For a full list of supported streaming protocols, see https://docs.unrealengine.com/en-us/Engine/MediaFramework/TechReference

i found the udp messassing plugin

This has nothing to do with media streaming or generic UDP networking. The plug-in is a transport layer for the Unreal Message Bus, which is communication infrastructure for writing distributed applications in UE4.

i really don't know how to call any class from that plugin

That's because you're not supposed to. The implementation of the transport plug-in is hidden on purpose. Like I said, this is not what you're looking for anyway.

i'm super lost right now

Yes, it sounds like you have some reading to do on network programming in general and media streaming in particular. However, I suggest that you focus on a simple solution approach right now and learn more on these topics once you have more time.

this project has to be done for the next week

Setting up a proper RTSP media server is the way to go for you as there won't be any additional programming needed. If you cannot or do not want to set up a media server, you can also try streaming via HTTP or HTTPS. Both protocols are supported on Windows.

Some people had luck streaming from hosted cloud storage, such as Google Files and Dropbox. However, some advanced media features, such as seeking and fast forwarding may be unavailable. I would recommend it only as a proof of concept. Also keep in mind that you will need the direct URL to a media file, not some intermediate HTML page that redirects to the file. WMF will not understand those.

my last option right now is to setup a rtsp server in raspberry pi and use ue4 as a receiver, i hope the delay won't affect that much on oculus rift (yes i have to do this with oculus rift), thanks for the help
