Unity says, the following error, is this because I'm using a free Unity instead of pro ?

The type or namespace name `MovieTexture' could not be found. Are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?

tutorial what I followed: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YBc3ubr18ks


If you building your game for mobile, Unity does not support MovieTexture for mobile platforms by default. By the way, there are several assets on the Store, not free though.

  • \$\begingroup\$ @Karoly, as documentation says, Movie Textures are not supported on iOS and Movie Textures are not supported on Android. Instead, full-screen streaming playback is provided using Handheld.PlayFullScreenMovie. \$\endgroup\$ – Exerion Sep 17 '15 at 13:15
  • \$\begingroup\$ ah, okay. I would like to do an augmented reality, when the user point the camera above the marker, the mp4 file starts. May I kindly ask , who would you solve it? Your help is highly appreciated . \$\endgroup\$ – Karoly Sep 17 '15 at 13:20
  • \$\begingroup\$ I can't say much about mp4 playing on mobile, but here you can find a lot of stuff about augmented reality. \$\endgroup\$ – Exerion Sep 17 '15 at 13:37
