Movie materials


I have been playing around with some media player movie textures…
While I managed to make a working material :slight_smile: I still have some questions about wether Im doing something wrong, or if its a limitation: :confused:

  1. Movie texture samples cannot be parameters. Thus it is not possible to make a flexible material with the video texture to be played as a parameter?

  2. The documentation says that the supported video formats depend on wehther the “plug in is installed”. In the plugins list is says “Windows Movie player”.
    However, only WMF seems to play in UE4. All other formats (that play correctly in the windows media player) dont.
    How do you install those plugins? Im getting the feeling that this is not really applicablehere is it?

Any help is appreciated :slight_smile:



Need a solution for the first point as well.
