How do I add custom video to a TV in my model?

I just loaded 6.5.1 pro version.   I saw on their demo video on their homepage that one can add video to a tv, but my menus appear to be different.

I have a "ghost buster" icon over the "imported material" box, is that the problem?

Hi Mike, welcome to the forum. :)

The red circle with the diagonal line through it means that the surface is using an imported material.

You need to assign a Standard material to the TV and assign an MP4 file as a video texture by clicking on the Color Map slot. Please note that the MP4 file size should be less than 50 MB.

There's more information in this Knowledge Base article.

Let us know if you need anything else.
