Is it possible to access PC or Mobile Cameras through UE4?

Is there a way to access webcam on PC and device cameras on mobile phones?

I am marking this as answered for tracking purposes.

i want this too! Augmented Reality is still just a gimmick in most of its applications, but I would love to see what the community can do when it becomes as accessible to create as Unreal has made other genres.

Hi, That is exciting. I could not use HTML5 Camera API, but could implementation Webcam over HTTP to a experimental. Which was using Web Browser Plugin in UE 4.8 Preview 4. This image is setting the streaming web service url.

Smartphone was using the instant webcam as well.


I made a plugin for this purpose today. If someone stumbles on this thread, feel welcome to have a look :slight_smile:
