How to play audio from video in UMG? >UE4.18


I am trying to play audio from a video in UMG. I got the video properly working, however, since the upgrade to 4.18 I need to use a “Media Sound Component” in an actor blueprint in order to be able to play sounds. However, I need to play the video with sound in UMG.

Can anybody explain to me how to do that after ue4.18?

Kind regards,


Attached my blueprint and the components and variables.

I actually solved it. I created an “dummy” actor wherein I added the media sound component. Within this actor I select a specific media player and let the actor live on the background. Because of this I do not need to reference to and media sound component in UMG (which seems not possible).
