Embedding another application in a UI window


So I have an interesting problem, that I’d like to solve using UE4. To do this I need to embed the visuals from another application (quite possible VLC media player streamed video) within unreal.

Is this at all possible? Maybe with ue4 media framework API?



I’m not so sure this belongs in the C++ section really, seemed appropriate at the time I posted as I thought C++ was the only solution.

Anyway, I’ve had a good looking the media framework and VLC now. It looks like this could be the solution. However, as yet I’ve been unable to find a VLC streaming format that UE4 can pick up.

Anyone had any luck with this?
