functionality similar to an mp3 player

similiar in the sense being able to display and browse through a local file system - and project that media file (image, webm, video, pdf etc) to a canvas texture.

Is that even possible? The only part Im not sure about is displaying/accessing/playing from local files. Any tips on where to start?

Im happy with being told that its a dumb question, cause Im really unsure of its feasibility with out using Unreal4 at this point.

Hi,

Sorry for late reply. Web browsers normally are not allowed to access local files (Same-origin policy). However, you can run a local web server with which your browser web app will communicate, as we did with our Project Manager.

This makes more sense to do it locally. Thanks :)
