QtWebkit doesn't support HTML5 audio?



  • Hello,

    I'm developing a QtWebkit application. First, I was compiling using Mingw but
    I had to migrate to Qt VS version.
    When I debugged the Mingw compiled app, it loaded phonon backend dlls, now that
    I'm compiling using the VS compiler, I don't see any phonon backends dlls being loaded.

    and when I open up this site:

    http://forestmist.org/2010/04/html5-audio-loops/

    Using the QtWebkit app, the audio players doesn't even show up.

    Could it be that my Qt VS compilation (that I downloaded from the Qt downloads site) was
    built without phonon?

    Has anyone been able to enable HTML5 audio at all?

    Thanks for your help,

    Sergio



  • Qt WebKit doesn't support audio tags.
    I tried w3 audio example in qwebview widget, and the output is:
    " Your browser does not support the audio element."



  • WebKit does, but for some reason it doesn't work on windows, maybe on the next update

    It's really a bummer that such basic HTML5 functionality is not supported in some cases.
