Media Reference is a
ScriptableObject asset used to define media location and properties. These are used with the MediaPlayer to load new media in a convenient manner. Media Reference is similar to
VideoClip asset in Unity.
The "Generate Thumbnail" button will generate a previous thumbnail which can make finding media easier. Note these thumbnails are editor only and are not included in builds. The horizontal slider allows setting the time in the video at which to capture the thumbnail. The toggle "Zoom To Fill" allows thumbnail image to fill the entire area of the square thumbnail, regardless of aspect-ratio.
|Media Location||The path or URL to the media|
|Transparency||This hint specified whether the media contains any transparency|
