Video mpg support

Hi,

neither in the manual/reference nor in the forum I could find any pointer as to how to play an mpg movie, but there were references giving the impression this was possible.

Can anyone help out?

Many thanks,

Have you seen this page in the manual?

I saw that page, but what do I do with the texture? Put it on a Cardmaker card and display the card in aspect2d?

Thanks,

Sure, that’s a fine answer, especially if your goal is just to display the movie in the window.

The full answer is, you can do anything with the texture that you might do with an ordinary texture, including applying it to a 3-D object in the world (for instance, to put a movie on a little TV screen in the world, or maybe to animate expressions for an avatar’s face or whatever wacky thing you can dream up).
