QSoundEffect(qaudio): Error decoding source
mnokka last edited by
I tried to play mp3/wma files using QSound, however I got "Error decoding source" runtime message (windows mediaplayer played files ok).
Only way I was able to play sounds, was to use QMediaPlayer do the playing.
Is there something odd related QSound (5.1/5.4) ?

Are you sure your path is correct? If Qt can't find the file it gives the "error decoding source" message which is misleading.
Add files to your resource file:
- (If you haven't already created one go to File | New | Qt | Qt Resource File).
- Click Add existing files then select sound files you want
- Right click and copy path
- Paste path to play filename. e.g. QSound::play(":/lose.wav");
