Recommend video/media plugin? Do I need one?
« on: February 21, 2017, 07:14:05 AM »
I am able to use Playmaker's built-in movie texture actions just fine, but I am looking for a solution that might run a little smoother with HD videos (1080p), and I can't import longer videos because Unity won't import large files. There are too many options on the Asset Store, with a broad range of prices that all more or less claim to do the same thing…. I have been trying demos, but many seem to be problematic on osX, and at least one (AVPro) threw an error when I had Playmaker installed.  ::)

Is there a Playmaker-compatible video plugin for osX and ios that anyone recommends? Hardware acceleration is great, but mostly I need Playmaker compatibility. Thank you for suggestions.

I am using AVPro at the moment for a project, the fix is easy,  simply add:

using HutongGames.PlayMaker;
using Tooltip = HutongGames.PlayMaker.TooltipAttribute;

After the using statements already there of the script WaitFinished.

 I meant to finish this project before distribute some more actions and proxy for this but If you plan on using this solution, let me know.
