EVE Players Get Control of Their Own Captain's Quarters Video Content

Posted Mon, Sep 26, 2011 by Martuk

Some crafty EVE Online players managed to figure out a way to get their own video to stream in-game a couple of weeks back and while some devs would patch the discovery up and write it off as a bug, CCP decided to keep it and allow players to convert and  play their own video.

In a new dev blog, CCP Optimal explains in three easy steps how EVE players can convert their videos and watch them on their new “hundred-and-something inch flat screen television" in EVE'sCaptain’s Quarters.

  • Download the BINK(.BIK) video conversion tool from here: http://www.radgametools.com/down/Bink/RADTools.exe. Using this tool, you should be able to convert most of your videos to BINK format, which is the industry standard when it comes to video playback in videogames. I recommend starting the first conversion process straight away since it may take a while.
  • Locate your EVE cache folder by following the guide found here: http://support.eveonline.com/Pages/KB/Article.aspx?id=371. Create a folder under your cache folder called “CQScreenVideos” if it doesn’t already exist.
  • Once a video has been converted to BINK format, copy it to the “CQScreenVideos” folder.

CCP would also like to make it clear that if your “cat” happens to step on your controls and put some morally hazardous content on your screen, you’ll need to take it up with the cat and not them.

I am an avid user of Eve and am more than interested in this area will you please keep me informed of the opputunities to have our own choice of entertainment in the captains quaters. How do we use facebook media clips and change them to usable content in this media. I have loads of uber cool snowboarding and arty stuff that could be loaded for my corp to see. Is this possible !!! Could all my corp also see the clips from this format !! I hope so as this would be awsome and a little different from the cyclic ship media and industry clips that we see at the moment!!

Can we please get audio support for this?! I'm dying to actually have my videos play audio!

Maybe we can get netflix in our ship too at some point

Just add the sound adn you'll have toons logged in watching their videos while looking over info and data in EVE-O lol
