I'd love to make cutscenes but for the life of me, the plugin confuses the heck out of me.
Import a video file (e.g. mp4) in the Projects/Files folder. Add a Video object to your layout (e.g. "myvideo.mp4"). Type the name of the file in its Properties (e.g. in H.264 source for mp4, so "myvideo.mp4"). Run your layout.
I think i've done that and it didn't work. I'll try it again sometime and let you know what happens.
Develop games in your browser. Powerful, performant & highly capable.
It didn't work. Tested it out with an mp4 I downloaded from YouTube. The video never played or showed up on the preview.
I have to ask, did you read the whole manual entry for video? I believe there is a condition in some browsers where a video will only play on a user-initiated action. So try a button that does Video->Play. You haven't given us any details on browser, etc. so research it up.
I got it to work. THe webm video file worked for me. Woohoo! Thanks.
cool well done
