Yes, since the time of RPG Maker 2003 (not sure about 2k), they removed that little function that some developers wanted: videos. But now we can forget about that since Ace has it now! In VX Ace, they require a format called: .ogv, which is basically a compressed video with .ogg sound format. Pretty sick. Although most don't know how to convert to this format, I do!
When you are ready, go ahead and open VLC. Next, open VLC and go to streaming...
Add your file and continue on.
Just press next on the next few parts instead of stream.
On the next step, select "Theora + Vorbis" then click on the Tools icon to the right.
Go to the "Video Codec" tab, and change the width to 544 and the height to 416
Press ok, and click the "add" button above.
This next part is typically tricky and sometimes is annoying. There's a problem with the VLC streaming if you choose the location of the video. So, instead just type in the Filename: [name for video].ogv
Press next, then press stream.
The file, after streamed, will most likely be found in C:\Program Files\VideoLAN\VLC or your Downloads folder.
Now, since the file format was .ogg in the conversion process, we need to change that by changing the extension to .ogv
If you don't see the extensions, take a quick look at my sub-tutorial:
How to get extensions
First of all, go to control panel and select "Folder Options."
Click the "View" tab, and un-check the "Hide extensions..."
Click ok afterwards
Part 2: Import and Test Go to resource manager, and select the "Movies" section. Import the video from that location or if you moved it, the other location.
After, create an event to test out your video.
And voilà, a video (Note that the back box on the sides of my video were like that in the original).
