Qsound in ubuntu



  • Hi,

    I using ubuntu desktop developing application for my embedded systems. When I tried QSound in Ubuntu desktop it doesn't worked. So I checked as follows. I gave output as false.

    @
    static QSound mysound("/media/sounds/Music.wav"); //The path of sound file is absolute.
    qDebug() << mysound.isAvailable();
    @

    So my questions are:

    Does QSound is available for desktop versions such as ubuntu?
    Or I am doing anything wrong?

    Regards,

  • Don't use QSound at all. Use phonon or Qt Multimedia if they fit your needs, otherwise any other sound library will do.



  • Thanks Peppe,

    My platform supports QtMultimedia. I going to use that.

  • In between driven by curiosity, whats the problem with QSound? Why it doesn't working? (Just ignore this post, if it is irrelevant)

  • It's old, bugged, supports basically one file format, has a cumbersome API, and requires NAS under Linux (which is something that isn't installed by default since like 1999).



  • Thanks Peppe.
