I followed the tutorial from the archived forums, [TUTORIAL] Live Stream Security cameras / Post Processing

I have it working perfectly in editor and when testing locally. But like some in that thread, I have only a green screen when on a live server. maclobster had the issue and posted this:

Just dont use the aascenecapturereflectactor
but the scenecapturereflectactor
However I'm not looking for a reflection, just the regular scenecapture.

Any ideas what I need to do?

EDIT :neutral: I figured it out.

I must have been tired when I tried it before because the solution was simple, and I just had to think more about maclobster's quote above. So the trick is to not use the AASceneCapture2DActor but rather the SceneCapture2DActor

    Good to see you got it working.

    One thing I will say, depending on the number of camera sources you want, you might find people complaining of lag/stutter when playing the map, especially those with lower spec PCs. I think the code used for the capture actor requires all players to constantly compute the captured footage, even if they are not looking at a screen displaying it.

    I built MedCentre with 5 security cameras (streaming to 2 sets of 4 screens) and one mirror, and several clan mates found it unplayable. I had to lower it to two cameras on two screens with no mirror to get it working, and they still say it is not perfect.

    That's it possible that AAPG's spectate cameras cause lag/stutter???!!

    This has been a test of the emergency flame-fest system. Please do not adjust your set.
