Hey there!

Today i want to solve a loading or preload problem. Basically ive included a video file into my game i want to play (its like a cutscene). If i play the game on a pc with a bad connection, the video buffer is causing into lagging problems.

Is there a possability to load the video at once, before construct trys to show it?

ive included this video on a sperate Layout. So this layout will be loaded, if i start the game. Maybe i can load the video file before i press start and not durring the video layer is loaded?

Thank you very much!

Best regards!

I'm not really experienced with the video object, but perhaps you can mute the video and let it play in the background when the layout starts, then set it to replay when you get the the cutscene?
