View Full Version : Using external DLL's to play video

30th Dec 2004, 10:21 AM
I'm pretty sure UE2 Runtime doesn't natively support AVI playback, but I know UnrealScript can access some dll functions. Could I access a very general system dll like the windows winmm.dll to play avi videos in Unreal? If not, could I write my own avi video playback routine in C++, compile it into a dll and call it from UnrealScript? Has anyone done this already or know where to find more info?

No, while it is said that Unrealscript can access native functions, you cannot simply just use any 'native' code that you find.
