    Video behind Menu

    Hi all, I'm building a menu system for a game, everything is progressing well, except one thing I need help on. On the main menu, I would like to have a running video of gameplay going on in the background behind my menu. I cant find any documentation on this and not even sure if its possible, I have bink video encoder and have used it to change the loading screen, can I use something similar for a menu system?
    If anyone has any information it would be greatly appreciated, Thanks.

    Scaleform has a video solution, but it isn't integrated with UDK. Our solution allows you to put Flash video directly in a SWF.

    However, you'll need to figure out another way using Bink. Unfortunately, I don't know how that can be done myself, but, if you can put a SWF/Flash movie on top of the 3D game world, I don't see why you couldn't do the same with a Bink movie.

    Maybe you could even make the Bink movie a texture on a 3D object in the game world, that is placed just right so that it fills the screen, then draw your Scaleform menu/HUD on top as usual.
