Cannot access multimedia widgets in designer (Qt 5.2.1)

  • I am new to Qt and c++. I am using Ubuntu 14.04, Qt 5.2.1, Qt Creator 3.1.1.

    I am stumped and have spent many hours trying to resolve this issue. I am trying to configure designer to include multimedia widgets. I am using the version of designer that comes with Qt Creator and there are no multimedia widgets available in the widget tool bar. I have downloaded all of the multimedia packages, including the -dev package and the widgets package.

    I can open, build, and run the multimedia examples included in creator, so I know that I have done something right. My guess is that there is a path error or a misplaced file. Does anyone have an idea about how to fix this?

  • Hi,

    Unfortunately the widgets in the Qt Multimedia module are not available in Designer. You have to use them programmatically in your source code.
