Changing the configuration of Studio could result in corruption of your Studio installation, place files you open with this changed configuration, etc. Use at your own risk!
Hello! This is a tutorial of how to test VideoFrame in Roblox! Let’s get straight to it.
(I don’t explain much because I’m lazy and in a rush.)
VideoFrames are a GUI object that is in testing mode right now. It plays audio and a video from files or such. My theory is that they will add a new thing you can upload which is videos so Roblox can moderate the content instead of putting it in your files to reach it. VideoFrames support WEBM files and I’m pretty sure that it doesn’t support others, but Roblox might add more valid video files.
– Adding VideoFrame to game. –
First, you need to get RobloxStudioModManager from CloneTrooper1019’s GitHub so you can test out objects in testing mode, press
Clone Or Download, then press
Link : GitHub - CloneTrooper1019/Roblox-Studio-Mod-Manager: An open-source custom bootstrapper for Roblox Studio that allows you to override files in Roblox Studio's directory, opt into development branches of Roblox, and experiment with Fast Flags.
When downloaded, open the file and open or double tap on the folder to open it’s contents. (Need a zip application)
Once you are in the folder, you need to open or double tap,
This would most likely pop up.
When you’re in the mod manager, you see Edit Fast Flags. To enable VideoFrames, press
Edit Fast Flags. (An error will pop up saying “Editing flags can make Roblox Studio unstable, and could potentially corrupt your places and game data.”. This is a warning, if you still want to proceed, go and do so.)
Press ‘Yes’, and most likely it would say, “Studio is not updated” or something that means that Studio is not updated yet. Again, if you still wanna proceed, click the button that means yes (I haven’t encountered this but I have heard of it) and proceed.
Now, at the top, it says
"Search". Type “VideoSupport” in the Search bar, and click enter.
Right now, you should see this. When you see VideoSupport, press,
Override Selected near the top left. Once, you’re in the Overrides, when you see value, in VideoSupport, double click it and change it to
Then, close your Flag Editor, then Mod Manager will pop up again. When you’re in here, change Studio Branch to sitetest2.robloxlabs, and set true to
Just Open Studio Directory.
Now, press Launch Studio. It will probably install a version, but that’s fine. When it’s done, it will open file explorer. Go to the bottom, then you will see,
RobloxStudioBeta. Open that studio application.
When you open, it looks normal. Pick the game you wanna test it in, and make a SurfaceGui, and make it in place.
Once you’re done, open command bar, then type,
Then press enter.
Once you press enter, a VideoFrame is added to workspace. Put the VideoFrame in the SurfaceGui and tweak with it’s properties.
– Making the video work. –
Once you put the VideoFrame in, you need to add the video. Go back to the place where you opened
RobloxStudioBeta and press
Once you are in content, put your video file inside of content. I recommend WEBM, I haven’t tried MP4 so soon I’ll do it.
For example, I put my Video in and named it ‘thing’
When you’re done, go to Roblox Studio again, then go to the
VideoFrame's properties. When you see video, type in “rbxasset://” then your video name, then your video file name. For example,
“rbxasset://thing.webm” cause my video is called thing, and my video file is
So, after you do that, set
Playing to true if you want it automatically, or you can do it manually in a script with
So, that is how you test VideoFrames in Roblox Studio! If anything is wrong, tell me in the replies.
