QtMultimedia (commercial license)



  • Hi,
    Does Qt commercial license allow me dont bother about any patent/royalty fee if I use in my application QtMultimedia with WMF backend for play/decode mp3 files?
    And same question about video playback.

    Hi,

    That's unrelated. QtMultimedia provides support for native multimedia backends and will be able to decode whatever said backend can.

    The fact that you may have to use a non-free codec has nothing to do with regards to Qt's commercial license.

    So no, it's still your own responsibility to properly pay for non-free codec that you may need.

    Note that patents have a lifetime, see the MP3 Wikipedia article.



  • Thanks for answer!
