How to use mp3 with qt from resource.qrc in an application for symbian device?

  • Hello Everyone,
    I'm new in QT development for mobile using c++. I'v some problems regarding playing audio. I'm using one mp3 to load with my application. This should be present within the sis file.
    player = new QMediaPlayer;
    player->setMedia(QUrl::fromLocalFile(":/song/GN.mp3")); //song is in my resource.qrc
    If I will use absolute path then my audio file will reside in system and I need it on my phone.

    Anyone there to help?

    Thanx in advance for your support.

    Edit: please use @ tags around code sections; Andre

  • Hi, ~satya@sipl!

    Welcome to Qt Developer Network.

    There is a bug in Qt Mobility bugtracker ("QTMOBILITY-904":

    Sound cannot be played from resources. The best solution will be to copy it to temporary directory.

  • Is this bug fixed on Qt 5.3? How come it hanging there for such long time...

    symbian is no supported for Qt5. You need to use Qt4.

    see "supported platforms":
    for more details.

    You are out of luck if you want to stick with Symbian.
