  1. Hi, I have followed your tutorial and everything works fine in play mode but I cant build project on android.
    Worth to mention that I configured everything like you show on money tutorial and that project works fine … can u help in this matter or is text rec not working on android ?
    Tkanks in advance.

  2. Thank you for the tutorial! I am working on a app that is going to be using Text Reco and Cloud Reco. I have a couple questions that I am hoping you could answer. For starters When I run it on unity I the space that can actually read the text is really small and not that forgiving whenever I move the text. I was wondering if you knew of a way to make where it reads the text larger/ more forgiving when the target/Phone moves? Also I was wondering If you knew anything about cloud recognition, I tried using the vuforia tutorials but they are out of date and no longer work and the newest tutorial I can’t seem to figure out either. I’m assuming i’m messing up in some sort of way because when I look online nobody else seems to struggle. Any input would help! especially with the cloud Recognition if you can, thanks!

  3. I am Getting this error
    The type or namespace name `MovieTexture’ could not be found. Are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?

    • Same as here. Im basically new, so I dont understand how the script works. Though when I try playing, it works but, there that error. I cant build it.
