Trouble with videos and QWebView deployment

  • So I have a QWebView issue that has been frustrating me for a few days. I am trying to use a QWebView widget to show youtube videos as part of a tutorial. This works great on my development box, but whenever I deploy to another machine everything works except for flash and html5 videos. Pages with this type of content result in a QWebView::loadFinished(false) except for on my machine where they work. I am using MSCV2010_openGL qt 5.4.1(the prebuilt version) and qt creator.

    I am setting things up like this.

    QWebSettings::globalSettings()->setAttribute(QWebSettings::PluginsEnabled, true);
    webView->setAttribute(QWebSettings::PluginsEnabled, true);
    webView->setAttribute(QWebSettings::LocalStorageEnabled, true);
    webView->setAttribute(QWebSettings::JavaEnabled, true);
    webView->setAttribute(QWebSettings::JavascriptEnabled, true);
    webView->setAttribute(QWebSettings::LocalContentCanAccessRemoteUrls, true);

    QString url = "";

    and I make my deployment with:
    windeployqt --webkit2

    Using dependency walker I see no real differences between the machine it works on and the ones it doesn't. Do I need to deploy additional files to enable flash or HTML5 videos?
