Any plans to get Qt Multimedia working on Windows?

  • After doing a lot of testing trying to get Qt Multimedia related classes working in a Windows environment, I came across this:

    This was referenced by a newsgroup post from 2014 so presumably it's been an issue for a while.

    I have program that I want to use to publish multimedia content and would like for it to run in a Windows envirnoment. Is there any hope that the Windows bindings for this library will ever be completed?

    That's bit too light in details. What feature do you need exactly ?

    On a side note, you should rather bring this topic to the interest mailing list. You'll find there QtMultimedia's developers/maintainers. This forum is more user oriented.

  • I'd like to be able to create a video and have my program generate the audio and video content for the file. I'm considering using the ffmpeg library, but wanted to see if there was a pure Qt solution first.

    I'm having very little luck. Even querying QMediaRecorder to get a list of available codecs is returning null. The linked page suggests that the bulk of Qt Multimedia is not implemented on Windows, which would explain my problems. However, it also means that I cannot use Qt for multimedia if I want a cross platform program.

    VLC might be an interesting option too as it provides bindings for Qt.
