Recording Video using Qt on Windows



  • Hello, first of all this is my first post. I apologize in advance for any typos and semantic flaws.

    I have a very simple problem,

    My goal is recording video on Windows using Qt. I came across a title related to the subject in the Qt documentation. https://doc.qt.io/qt-5/qtmultimedia-windows.html. It says, "Video recording is currently not supported". So how can i achieve my goal? Should i use a library for that purpose? For example opencv? If so, is it a reasonable approach to use a library for just recording video?

    Thank you for your help in advance.

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    No issue. with using an external library such as OpenCV. It's pretty usual to use several different libraries and toolkits to achieve one's goal. There's no one tool fixes everything in development. Additional advantage of using a library like OpenCV (or maybe libVLC) is that it is also cross-platform so all to your own benefit.



  • Thank you so much. Your answer provided the information I needed.
