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"

Video Playback with HTML5


After multiple tests and wondering what I'm doing wrong, I've come to learn that Unreal Engine does not support video playback when ported to browser, even though audio works fine. Is there a way around this? Or a plugin? Surely there must be a way to use video media in HTML5. Any ideas or experiences in doing this would be greatly appreciated, cheers!

Product Version: UE 4.21

multi-threading for HTML5 in wasm is just about there. we are now working on getting a number of items (multi-threaded rendering, file system, streaming, movie player, etc.) to work again in UE4.

stay tuned!

Thanks for the update, this is great! I'm currently working on a project that would be video centric and would be great to have working with HTML5. Is there a rough time scale for this to be implemented into the engine natively? Or is it better to use tags or implementing the Mozilla Animating Textures library when packaged?

I am also working on a video centric project for HTML5, as domridle_affari. I have the same question about the expected time frame for the multi-threaded video player. Also, is there maybe a branch on UE's github for experimenting with this sooner? Thank you

Hi. I'd also really like to get video playback working in an HTML5 build. Is there any update on the progress of this? Many thanks.
