Is there no way to play streaming video in 3d space (youtube/vimeo etc)?

I don’t want to have a large file with embedded media so a good solution would be to stream the video into the application. But is this only possible for full screen streaming ?

Hi Steve,

Studio does indeed support streamed video, so you won’t need to have your files local to the project.

It’s important to note that streamed video URLs need to link directly to a video file, rather than a video hosted on a site such as YouTube or Vimeo.

Also, these streamed videos don’t necessarily have to be played in full screen, here’s a tutorial from our docs which you might find handy:

Streaming video in the 3D view

Hope this helps.

Thanks,
Seb

Thanks for the response. I managed to host the video on one of our servers and it works fine. Cheers.
