How to add a video to Ogre Project

Post by Uma » Mon May 12, 2014 9:55 am


I want to load a video stream (mp4 or avi) to Ogre. I use Visual Studio 2010 an Ogre 1.8 version

I try to use Theora plugin describe as this link " ... +Compiling". But I can not properly download ogg, vorbis, theora, ptypes, TheoraVideoPlugin libraries. :oops:

If someone can reply me with direct download links for these libraries or with a link which includes proper guidelines or easy method to download and install these libraries, i will be very pleased.

Thanks in Advance.

If you are having trouble managing dependencies like ogg/vorbis then video is going to be a real problem for you. The other options you have beyond theora based would be ffmpeg based (tricky to use in visual studio) and directshow (directx as dependency, but windows only).

If you don't need cross platform, try directshow. I'm sure you will find a video project for ogre based on that.
