QT 5 - multimedia osx does multimedia library use quicktime as a backend
jolson last edited by
In the past I used Qt/phonon for playing video. This has caused a problem on mac because phonon uses quicktime as a backend. My app requires that I use qiodevice. When using phonon quicktime will attempt to load the entire video in memory before playing.
So my question - does QT 5 multimedia use quicktime as a backend or is the new library able to parse/play video without the quicktime?
