QWebEngine - how to disable Chrome sandbox using Quicknanobrowser (Qt5.4.1)



  • I have ported Qt5.4.1 to ARM platform, QtWebEgnine Quicknanobrowser is basic working fine but I have video player issue. In order to debug ffmpeg related video player issue, seems I have to disable sandbox to enable ffmpeg debug log to print out. For chrome browser, there is command line option '-no-sandbox' to disable sandbox, but this command line option is not working for Quicknanobrowser.

    How can I disable sandbox to get debug log from Chrome?



  • AFAIK there is no way to do this in Qt 5.4.1
    I'm also waiting for an option to pass command line parameters to be able to set a proxy - that's the only way to set proxy in Blink (and I'm afraid we'll have to forget about proxyForUrl - not a big deal but... Webkit could be removed after 5.6 so we'll have to stick to old versions...)

    but you can try Qt 5.5 alpha announced here
    http://blog.qt.io/blog/2015/03/17/qt-5-5-alpha-available/

    According to this section "Updated Qt WebEngine and Qt WebView"
    they are working on settings "Qt WebEngine now provides APIs for ... as well as settings"
    Honestly I don't know if that includes command line parameters/settings...
    BTW Still no binaries so you'll have to build it yourself or wait for beta
    HTH
