This is a plugin to Storyboard which uses the FFmpeg libraries to play and control audio and video files. In order to use this backend, the plugin must be included with in the runtime engine. You can play a video from the Storyboard Designer Simulator, as well as using the Storyboard Engine on supported platforms. Note that at this time, FFmpeg ships with only WebM video format support and Ogg audio format support.
