Not used Dark Basic in years, but I seem to remember it involving Play Animation to Image, with the object using that image as it's texture. It's definitely possible, I have used it in the past.

i checked my backup folders and found an old example project that i got with my copy of dark basic pro, called 3D Video. it does what you want to make and some more stuff.
i've added it to this post.

Thank you for Respond. DVader
Thank you for the example. Zero32


Below is my Coding for that.

load animation "media\1.mpg",1
play animation to image 1,5,0,0,352,240
make object plain 2,352,240
xrotate object 2,-45
position object 2,0,100,0
FIX OBJECT PIVOT 2

do
TEXTURE OBJECT 2,5
CONTROL CAMERA USING ARROWKEYS 0,5,5
sync
loop


But, the problem is the plain object is black screen but with audio playing. Very wired. I try many format, AVI, MPG, MP4, WMV. AVI, WMV and MP4 will play the video, but in another window (called active window). MPG play the audio, but the object remain black screen.

zero32, I already try the 3D video file that you had attached. The audio is fine, 3D environment is fine, but still the "object screen" is still blackout.

For one thing, you only need to texture the object once during setup, you dont need to call it every loop

@Dispenser Ting

I tested your code with an AVI file, a .WMV, a .MPG and a MOV file that I had lying around and they all worked with DBP Upgrade U77RC7 with some very minor changes to your code. Here's the code I used (although as Ortu noted you don't need to use TEXTURE OBJECT inside the loop}.

Which version of DBPro are you using?

@Green Gandalf

I use the latest version of the open source file. Is that the one that you are using? Since it is open source I face a lot difficulty. Just can't get everything right like previous purchase version. Especially the the example and tutorial in the previous version, which rely that a lot for my project. Now all gone! Sad Sad Sad.

@Green Gandalf

IT WORKS. Thank you for sharing link to download the U77 version.
https://forum.thegamecreators.com/thread/180294

I reason for my previous version (open source) from
https://forum.thegamecreators.com/thread/217979 cant play the animation in program.

All you need to do is download a free version of the DBPro from c-net ,
http://download.cnet.com/Dark-Basic-Pro/3001-2247_4-75622155.html

and install the U77 version.

Should be ok then.
