Unsolved QML Image: Error decoding: data:image/jpeg;base64,
I have a qml application running in windows 10, build with mingw with 5.15.2.
A part of the application has a QML Image object that takes a base64 string as an image source.
The base 64 string is on the form "data:image/jpeg;base64,/9j/4 ......and a looooong string that follows after this.
The string has also been tested in many online base64 converters and it is indeed the image I have encoded.
The application runs fine in my build environment, I build the Makefile with cmake -G "MinGW Makefiles", and build the application with the "mingw32-make -j12" command.
The issue is that I cannot get this to work on a target PC I deploy the application to.
I deploy it using the windeployqt tool, and the entire application runs as expected, but when I try to load these base64 strings as sources for my QML Image objects, I get the
"QML Image: Error decoding: data:image/jpeg;base64,<rest of the base64 string>" error code.
Any idea what I can do to fix this?
I have also tried removing the "data:image/jpeg;base64," part of the base64 string, but then I get this error: "QML Image: Cannot open: qrc:"
Can you explain exactly what you did to deploy your application ?
Does it run successfully on your machine outside of Qt Creator once you deployed it ?
