Unreal Engine 4 Genvid Plugin

The Genvid Plugin is a standard Unreal Engine 4 plugin which developers can drop in their UE4 game and quickly get started with the Genvid SDK.

It provides a few utility routines to help interact with the Genvid native API. It also provides the necessary code to perform auto-capture of both audio and video data. Finally, as a convenience, it automatically calls Genvid_Initialize() and Genvid_Terminate() when the plugin is loaded and unloaded.
