[Solved] No video plackback with QtMultimedia

  • Hi guys,

    I've spent some time searching the web to solve this issue. So, in case you're on Ubuntu 14.10 and QtMultimedia player won't play your videos because of missing decoder plugins, installing gstreamer0-10-ffmpeg should help.

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mc3man/gstffmpeg-keep
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg

    Found here: http://askubuntu.com/questions/575869/how-do-i-install-gstreamer0-10-ffmpeg-on-ubuntu-14-10

    Example code:

    import QtQuick 2.4
    import QtQuick.Controls 1.3
    import QtQuick.Window 2.2
    import QtMultimedia 5.4
    ApplicationWindow {
        title: qsTr("Hello world")
        width: 640
        height: 480
        visible: true
        Video {
            anchors.fill: parent
            autoPlay: true
