Learn how-to create OGG Theora video that can be used in game!

Posted by on - Basic UI/HUD

In this tutorial we are going to look at how to trans-code a video from YouTube and convert it into RAW video and WAV audio. We can accomplish this using open source software like ffmpeg and other useful tools.

In this two-part video you will learn:

  • How to grab raw FLV files off YouTube.
  • Trans-code FLV into raw video and PCM wave audio to prevent loss of quality.
  • Convert raw video into OGG Theora format without any problems or jitters.
  • Bring video into NeoAxis file system, creating separate location to store them from sounds which have the same *.ogg extension.
  • Create a EVideoBox GUI control that we will attach to a GameGUIObject which looks like a Terminal in-game.
  • How to create logic event in Map Editor to connect GameGUIObject to buttons and video itself to control playback when user clicks button.
  • Hook EVideoBox functions to check if EndOfVideo and automatically restart interface for playback once more.
