Video as Background Image

Hi all,

I’ve been using a video as a background image, and it’s been working great. However, today when I tried this the video would stay as long as I didn’t touch anything but as soon as I so much as hit a key the video would disappear. I quit the program and reopened it to get the same result. I uploaded an image instead of a movie, and it worked just fine.

Is this a glitch with blender, or am I doing something wrong?

Make sure you are in orthographic view AND either in the front/back, left/right or top/bottom view. Otherwise, you can put the video onto a plane instead of using background images/videos.
