Phonon doesn't work when macdeployqt is used.

  • Hi!

    With Qt 4.8.5, Phonon works great in OSX until the executable is deployed with macdeployqt.
    macdeployqt doesn't print any errors, and the executable works as before until Phonon is used.

    Application output shows this warning message:
    @WARNING: bool Phonon::FactoryPrivate::createBackend() phonon backend plugin could not be loaded @

    This happens on Snow Leopard and Mountain Lion.

    What can I do to deploy Phonon?

  • Does the Console application give you any further details?

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    Check that you have all the dependencies and plugin in your resulting bundle. Also check that all paths have been corrected.
