adding media streams to the lobby

Post by raidensnake » Tue Jan 17, 2012 2:30 am

is it even possible? I want to add a wmp stream and the only thing I've seen that's even close is garry's mod plugins.

We answered you in the chat, but i´ll repeat it again with more detail:

Animated texture would be probably the best option, although only is recommended if the sequence is very short (due the size).

Another method would be divide the movie into frames, and pic it some frames and put it some brush. This method is very old, and it was used in GoldSrc. It would be like a slide.


There are not more ways, since the other thing would be make a video-mod, like the EP1 video, and that is not possible here.


Although like Neico said, LUA allows you make awesome things.

I know this is a bump, but is useful:

No idea if OC have that code added, but it could allow you play a movie directly in a map. The main question would be if the vgui_ entities really works, but that is another thing that one day of this will test...
