QVideoWidget not showing video



  • Hi,
    I was playing with QtMultimedia and I thought the next piece of code should show the video

    @

    //VIDEO PLAYING .....

    QMediaPlayer *player = new QMediaPlayer;
    QMediaPlaylist *playlist = new QMediaPlaylist(player);
    playlist->addMedia(QUrl("E:/karamage.avi"));
    playlist->addMedia(QUrl("E:/karamage1.avi"));
    
    QVideoWidget *videoWidget = new QVideoWidget;
    player->setVideoOutput(videoWidget);
    
    playlist->setCurrentIndex(1);
    player->play();
    
    //VIDEO PLAYING ENDS HERE.
    
    //WE DEAL WITH LAYOUTS HERE
    QVBoxLayout * mLayout=new QVBoxLayout();
    mLayout->addWidget(videoWidget);
    setLayout(mLayout);
    
    //LAYOUT HANDLING ENDS HERE.
    

    @

    But when I run the application ,I simply see an empty widget .I feel I missed sth and I would appreciate it if you helped me point it out.I apologize if this is obvious.(I am jut getting started with Multimedia programming) .

    My setup: Windows8.1/ Qt 5.2 / VS2012

    Thanks for your time.

    Hi,

    Check the console output, it might be some missing codecs (avi is only a container and can have many things in it)
