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"

Streaming Video from a Webcam onto the HTC Vive headset.

Hi all,

I am working on a telepresence robotics project with the HTC Vive and am wondering how to get stream video from a webcam onto the HTC Vive headset.

How can I use the webcam in Unreal Editor?

Then how do I create a screen in the headset that displays the video feed?

If anyone has a video tutorial they know of out there that is similar to this I would also greatly appreciate that.

Thanks!
