video texture in 2.48

I often wish they would leave well enough alone.
no online tute agrees with the present layout.
how do i put a video as a texture?
i have tried avi, mpg,wmv

it WILL show a still image

solution version 2.49 (although it says to download python 2.6 which is not obvious on the python website)

thanks all


no video.blend (136 KB)

I don’t really know. It always works for me.

You have two issues: Blender says there under the filename/folder “Cannot get image” which means the file does not exist or is encoded with a codec that Blender cannot use.
2. You need to click auto Refresh if you want the video to play more than just the first frame.
