Thank you for your answer! I've yet to find a good introduction into QML for C++ developers, but I was a little put off by the somewhat convoluted approach as different tutorials either don't show any QML or only use it soley to develop a very simple application.
The main problem I'm struggling is with QML is the ability to generate a GUI based on some set preferences. In my case the amount of e.g tabs in the "Options" pane should be defined by the amount of video files which are currently loaded. Is this easily possible to programatically extend QML GUIs?
