Enable Gstreamer in Qt5 configuration
I'm a newbie.
I got an issue and I try to solve it but unsuccessfully.
Could you please give me advice ?
I want play and video on Linux embedded,
I install Gstreamer and I can play video with command (gst-launch)
But in Qt configuration I can not enable Gstreamer option.
I try with command "configure -v " but no information about gstreamer is displayed.
Did i install lack of any package?
Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thank you so much!
Hi and welcome to devnet,
AFAIK gstreamer is the default backend on linux but it must be detected. Did you install the dev package ?
Thank for your reply.
I installed gstreamer-0.10.36 and gst-plugins-good, bad,ugly, ffmpeg...
Is it enough? What's dev package that you mention?

Is it enough?[/quote]No, those are runtime packages, not development packages.
[quote]What's dev package that you mention?[/quote]It should look like libgstreamer0.10-dev
Thanks for your support.
I installed libqtgstreamer-dev.
But when I run configuration again nothing change.
Does it need any more packages?
Did you just re-run configure or did you clean up before ?
Thanks for your advice.
I just rerun configuration,
Could you please tell me how to clean up old configuration on Qt5 without git?
IIRC, it should be
I tried and got error.
After searching on Google, I found that this command is not work with Qt5
Do you have any ideas?
Are you doing an out of source build ?
I'm doing in qt-everywhere-opensource where I run command configuration.
It got error result, but when I try this command in qtbase it run successfully.
I run configuration again and nothing change.
Gstreamer is not enabled, and no information about it >"<
If you are using a source package I would say, delete your current sources and start from new.
Also, use the shadow build possibility, this way you can play with the configuration without cluttering your sources
Thanks for a lot of support you give to me.
Do you mean that I should delete the current qt-everywhere-opensource...
uncompress file and configuration again ?
I will try it .
I have one more question.
In my Qt configuration information, GLIB is disable,
If I want to enable Gstreamer, I need to enable GLIB, is it right ? or they don't have any relation ?
Again, thank you so much!
Yes, that's what I mean.
Disabled or not detected ?
About Glib, when i run configuration, this information is displayed.
Glib auto-detection... ()
lib/arm-linux-gnueabi/librt.so.1: could not read symbols: Invalid operation
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [glib] Error 1
And in configuration table
Glib support ........... no
GStreamer support ...... no
PulseAudio support ..... no
Large File support ..... yes
GIF support ............ plugin
JPEG support ........... plugin (system)
PNG support ............ yes (qt)
Are you cross-compiling Qt ?
Yes. It's cross-compiling.
Yes, it's cross-compiling.
That's the kind of detail you should have mention earlier...
First thing, did you install a cross-compiling environment ? Did you pass the correct parameters to configure to enable cross-compilation ? Did you get the cross-compiled version of the dependencies you need ?
Sorry about mention cross-compiling lately.
The cross-compiling is installed in my system, it is linaro-arm-linux-
About parameters to configure, I think Qt can autodetect Gstreamer so I don't pass any option for Gstreamer in command.
When configuration, nomally it will display information why option is disable, which errors occurs... so I can fix errors and option is enable . With Gstreamer, nothing to display, it makes me confusion.
Thank for your support.
